Ligament injuries today may often be treated with fat stem cells. Partially torn Achilles tendons, rotator cuffs and anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) in the knee are among the common areas treated.
ACL injuries of the knee and Achilles tendon injuries are particularly representative examples of how fat stem cell therapy can potentially be an effective alternative to invasive surgery.
When an ACL ruptures or tears, it is often only a partial tear with the outer sheath remaining intact, or only minimally retracted, which leaves the ligament still mostly in place.
When this is the case, fat stem cell treatment can be an excellent option for repairing the damaged ligament.
This state-of-the-art procedure allows the patient to return to some forms of exercise within several weeks and back to full activity within several months.
Fat stem cells from your own body injected into the damaged ligament are quickly changing the way we look at activity ending knee injuries.
This choice consists of a minimally invasive 2-hour stem cell procedure, requiring no general anaesthesia and a far less painful recovery.

Footballers, Rugby players, golfers, Horse riders, track and field athletes and many others with a torn knee ligament can now consider forgoing the usual choice of invasive surgical repair.
Choosing a fat stem cell treatment for a knee injury can get you back to your passion in a fraction of the time, and with less long term risks of arthritis.
