Now Available in New Windsor: Ingenious New Approach in Orthopedics Offers Heroic Healing Role to Ordinary Body Fat
NEW WINDSOR, N.Y., Jan. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — An exciting medical technology that represents a new option for orthopedic patients has come to the New Windsor and the larger Hudson River Valley. In the minimally invasive procedure called LIPOGEMS, a patient’s own body fat is easily removed from the belly or “love handles.” The fat then is washed and resized before being injected to injured or damaged joints. The “repurposed” body fat helps provide cushion to help support the healing process of damaged or injured tissue.
“LIPOGEMS fits the best way possible for my patients because it offers a simple and efficient procedure that uses their own fat.”
One LIPOGEMS patient, New Yorker Fran Galu, was on the verge of ankle surgery when she sought out Dr. Ashraf for a second opinion and any possible options. “Dr. Ashraf told me about the LIPOGEMS procedure. I decided to give LIPOGEMS a try as a less invasive procedure without the [major] surgical rehabilitation. The procedure itself was comfortable and I had limited to no bruising. I had injections into my right ankle, my right knee and my left hip. And just recently, I was able to enjoy a vacation!” she said, grinning.
