The Lipogems Equine Veterinary Team
"I am happy to say that in my hospital, 70-80% of all cases treated with stem cell, has been shifted from bone marrow cultivated material to Lipogems, which we can use immediately on our patients. In the case of dog’s muscles, tendons and articular diseases, 100% of the cases is treated by Lipogems.”

Italian Lead Lipogems Canine Vet ~ Dr Offer Zeira
Director of San Michele Veterinary Hospital, Milan, DVM PhD Field Of Study Veterinary Orthopedics and Neurosurgery, “Whoever deals with regenerative medicine use stem cells, whoever deals with stem cells should use Lipogems. This is the shortest answer, yet the most complete and truthful, when colleagues ask me - why Lipogems? The longer answer is that Lipogems is a concept, a method and a device, all in one.
The concept - instead of using pure stem cells that should be cultivated and expanded and therefore are high cost, we use a true mini habitat containing a scaffold, stem cells precursors, numerous anti-inflammatory factors, trophic mediators and others.
The method - using mild mechanical forces in a completely closed system, with no enzymes, additives and other manipulations, avoiding complex regulatory issues.
The device - single-use medical device for the processing of lipo-aspirated adipose tissue. It is very friendly and straight forward device.
