Joint pain can be a difficult and challenging issue for many people, particularly those who aren’t sure if major surgery is the only solution. Fortunately, there are now alternative options available that may provide relief without having to resort to invasive surgery. Lipogems is one such promising treatment option that delivers excellent results for treating joint pain in the knees, wrists and shoulders.
Lipogems involve using fat from another part of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs, to generate new tissue and cushioning around the affected joints. This process can help reduce inflammation and restore mobility which can greatly improve quality of life. Additionally, it carries very few risks when compared with surgery. As well as treating joint pain directly, Lipogems can also be used to treat cartilage and tendon damage.

What is the Lipogems Procedure?
The Lipogems procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in a single session. It involves harvesting fat cells, treating them to remove unwanted debris and toxins, before being injected into the joint area. This process helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing response as well as providing additional cushioning to enhance joint mobility and reduce pain. As with any medical treatment, there are potential risks involved, but these are generally minor and minimal in comparison with traditional open surgery options.
The results of Lipogems treatments typically last much longer than other treatments such as corticosteroid injections, making it an attractive option for treating joint pain long-term. Studies have also shown that the procedure has fewer side effects than traditional open surgery, with reduced downtime and a quicker recovery period. With its promising results, Lipogems is proving to be an effective alternative for treating joint pain without the need for major surgery.
