A total knee replacement involves hours of surgery, a metal/polymer implant, and months of recovery. We prefer a minimally invasive approach that uses an injection instead of surgery, a cellular implant instead of a metal/polymer implant, and that allows the patient to walk out of the office instead of months of recovery.
Interventional orthopedics is a new field—a completely different way to treat your orthopedic pain and help you heal. No drugs. No joint replacement surgery. No metal implants. We use your own cells—the right ones in the right amount in the precise part of your body where they are needed. Reduction of inflammation starts by implanting your own cells—more capable than any anti-inflammatory drug on the market.
We are planning therapeutic options to treat inflammation—the root cause of many chronic diseases—in other parts of the body. The potential of the SVF-2 technology and SVF cells extend well beyond application to osteoarthritis and your musculoskeletal system. Clinical trials are currently underway or have already been completed to evaluate the SVF-2 technology for treatment of peripheral vascular disease, diabetic foot ulcers, and fibrotic kidney disease. We are excited about the early data and are building plans to further study cellular therapies for these important diseases.
