Fat Transfer in Orthopedic Medicine

Adipose Tissue-Derived Cells (tSVF) in Regenerative Medicine for Orthopedic Surgery

As an orthopedic surgeon, it’s clear you cover a significant number of procedures, everything from broken bones, painful joints, knee, and hip replacement, arthritis and sports injuries and many more. Orthopedic surgeons as well as plastic surgeons and sports medicine physicians have been using fat grafting in conjunction with procedures for many years to support healing and to help minimize infections.

At Tulip Medicial we developed the technology to make fat grafting a simple office-based procedure and have been at the forefront of regenerative medicine using adipose tissue since 1996. We have witnessed first hand the bundant advances being made in the understanding and potential of targeted cell-based therapies as they relate to orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.

Tulip Medical is proud to have lead the industry by particiapting in biocellular regenerative therapies which are rapidly improving in documentation and cellular analyses and are gaining good safety and efficacy profiles.

“Using your own tissues to heal represents a major health care paradigm change and is one of the most exciting minimally invasive options currently available.

According to Robert W. Alexander, MD, DMD, FICS who has been conducting seminal research on the regenerative properties of adipose tissue and its use in mulitple medicial conditions, found the following: Using tabletop devices for high platelet concentrations via a closed system, use of a simple blood draw yielded more than 4 to 6 times a patient’s own circulating baselines levels.

Orthopedic Surgical Applications

Gentle Office-based Lipoaspirate System

With a focus on adipose, and specifically True Nanofat® (TNF), you can rely on Tulip Biologics to provide functional products for your adipose procedures.

Using a closed syringe lipoaspiration system Tulip is able
to provide a less traumatic and efficient means of acquiring
ATC for use as a structural graft without surgery.

With our disposable, microcannula option you are able to
provide safe and efficacious low-pressure acquisition of AD-tSVF.

Tulip Nanofat System Procedure Advantages for Orthopedic Medicine

  • Ease to use system for harvesting adipose tissue
  • Consistent Delivery of high quantity of cells
  • Provides minimal morbidity experieced from donor site
  • Offers Patient Safety after implantation by using their own cells
  • Results from multipotent and proliferative cell groups
  • Secretion of immunomodulatory factors
  • Results of providing preferred immunoprivileged cells

Orthopedic Surgeons and Their Patients Benefit from the Latest Advances

  • Ideal cell-based therapy
  • Use your own cells (autologous)
  • Safe and easy harvest via closed system
  • Optimal to include native matrix
  • Transplant in same surgical session
  • Predictable and reproducible outcomes

Follow the Science on the Use of Adipose Tissue for Orthopedic Patients

Fat is a potent source of regenerative tissue which has been shown to contain a significantly higher density of regenerative components than other well-known regenerative source tissue such as bone marrow. [1] [2]

A fat tissue harvest is a less invasive, less painful and lower risk procedure than a bone marrow harvest, and patients are usually delighted to participate. [3]

Unlike bone marrow, fat tissue retains significantly more of its regenerative potency throughout the aging process. [4]

Autologous (from one’s own body) adipose tissue has been shown to repair and regenerate damaged soft and connective tissue such as muscle, tendon, ligament and skin. [5]

Tulip’s harvesting and processing systems are meticulously designed around its patent-pending protocols and devices which follow FDA’s 361 guidance. [6]
