To us, health is important for optimal performance. We prefer to work on the whole individual, because if we’re healthy inside, we’ll be healthy outside and age more slowly outside as well. We have years of experience injecting hundreds of joints starting long before it became possible to extract regenerative cells from fat. Combine this with our extensive experience with liposuction, having performed over 4000 procedures, these factors make us the optimal physicians to extract regenerative cells from fat and re-inject them to rejuvenate joints.
When needed we also use ultrasound guidance to help place the cells in just the right location. Dr Riopelle has performed procedures under ultrasound guidance using for years as well. Our state of the art office in San Ramon also has a hyperbaric chamber that we utilize after placement of the stem cells to enhance their survival. The entire procedure from start to finish is performed in one afternoon in our San Ramon office. Patients from out of the area fly in the morning of the procedure and return home the next day if desired.
