Lipofilling for best rehabilitation?
« on: January 29, 2017, 02:33:17 PM »
Hi All,
I had microdrilling surgery for my ankle in October. After the drilling doctor did lipo transplantation from my stomach to joint. Also, just yesterday doc retry it, as it should have BMAC-like effect as doctor said.
But I could not find any information about it here or in Internet. Did anybody had same surgery and did it help?

p.s. looks like the medical name is "autologous fat grafts"

By the way, that looks useless. I didn't get any benefits from it.
You can find some researches, that fat doesn't contain any usefull cells, which bone marrow has.

Thanks for sharing your experience John. I love it when people come back after a period of time and update everyone with their progress. It's super helpful to the community.

I'm kinda confused as why the doctor would want to transplant fat to your joint... shouldn't he be doing a graft with cartilage?
That's what OATS is after all, transferring cartilage from the knee to your ankle joint.
