INNOVATIVE THERAPY FOR HIP PAIN
Hip arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. Patients try to delay hip replacement surgery for as long as possible and often seek hip injections with steroids. Steroid injection is not favored as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time. Certain types of hip problems including certain fractures and injuries may not be amenable to innovative therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess the likelihood of success in attempting alternative therapy.
Dr. Todd Malan has developed a degenerative hip disease SVF treatment protocol that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of harvested fat cells. This is all done as an outpatient and the entire surgical procedure takes approximately 3 hours.
