The natural way to heal

Joint and musculoskeletal problems affect people of all ages and genders and are becoming more frequent. The impact on the quality of life of those who are affected has negative consequences and can prevent normal day to day functions.

The Approach

The conservative approach

The conservative approach can include:

  • change of habits aimed at stimulating the articulation or the affected tendon as little as possible;
  • physiotherapy;
  • chondroprotective drugs;
  • analgesic therapy through the administration of NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), of steroidal anti-inflammatories and painkillers;
  • infiltration (in the case of joint problems) through injection of hyaluronic acid and steroidal anti-inflammatories;
  • medical procedures designed to help repair, reconstruct and replace the damaged or injured tissue.

The surgical approach involves the implantation of a partial or total joint prostheses. Arthroprosthetic procedures are performed only if conservative therapy has not given any result. Surgery is not without risks and is not always feasible which drives patients to look for alternatives.


"Fat", also called adipose tissue, is a complex tissue composed of many types of cells including adipocytes, reticular cells, mesenchymal cells and perivascular cells, all immersed in a microenvironment called niche. Fat is a tissue that has not only a structural function, but plays an important role in thermal insulation, protection from trauma, hormonal regulation and energy reserve.
Adipose tissue is a versatile tissue that plays an essential role in various physiological processes. Several studies, over decades, have encouraged scientists to investigate the healing properties of fat. There are even examples in the literature of how adipose tissue was used in the care of soldiers during the First World War. So what have we learned from scientific research and history? That fat can help support the body's repair of damaged tissues. In short, fat does not deserve its bad reputation and can be used to facilitate healing processes.
Adipose tissue is abundant in the human body and it is known to contain properties that support healing and tissue repair.
A medical procedure has been developed that optimizes the use of adipose tissue to support natural healing processes. The same adipose tissue from the patient can be used to support healing of damaged tissues


The procedure exploits a technology that processes the body’s fat without affecting it in order to protect and support damaged tissue. Adipose tissue is injected into precise areas to help create an ideal environment for tissue repair. The fat can be easily collected through a minimally invasive procedure requiring only a simple local anesthetic. A simple procedure requiring only local anesthesia (without the patient being asleep) can be completed in approximately one hour in a clinic or hospital setting. The post-procedural recovery time is himself. Through a simple incision, a small quantity of adipose tissue is taken, generally from the waistline (the so-called “love handles”) of the patient themself. The harvested adipose tissue is then processed through a special device that washes it using a sterile saline solution and micro-fragments it into small clusters. The essential cells and structural properties remain unchanged.
