Practice Approach

After 30 years of performing a wide variety of orthopedic procedures to treat sports injuries and arthritic conditions, we are excited to offer the investigational use of Adipose Derived Stem Cells (ADSC’s) for clinical research and deployment.  This technology adds to our toolbox of treatment choices for the patient with orthopedic and degenerative conditions. Our treatments are part of an investigative program begun in 2010 by 2 surgeons in Southern California. As affiliates of the Cell Surgical Network® (CSN), we utilize the network’s specific protocols for harvesting fat cells followed by deployment into injured joints or tendons.   We are committed to working with orthopedic patients looking for alternatives or additions to traditional surgical options and those who are not yet ready for total joint replacement.

An online application/interest form is filled out, and then a free 10 minute informational phone call is provided if you meet our criteria for stem cell treatment. If appropriate, a consultation, preferably in the office, or via Skype if you are at a distance, is then done to review the specifics of your problem and determine if you are a candidate for adipose derived stem cell (ADSC)  treatment.
