Have you been told your only option for joint pain is steroid injections or joint replacement surgery? Minimally invasive regenerative alternatives offer pain relief and can help you get your lifestyle back
Regenerative therapies such as Micro-Fragmented Adipose Tissue (MFAT) (using Lipogems® technology), Bone
Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy help the healing process and ensure that the injury heals correctly therefore alleviating the pain.
Improvement in pain and mobility can take place within four to six weeks and patients can continue to see improvements for up to 12 months.
Our expert team specialises in treating all types of arthritis using advanced non-surgical techniques including mesenchymal stem cell therapies, Micro-Fragmented Adipose Tissue (MFAT) and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC).
Micro-Fragmented Adipose Tissue (MFAT)
Over a one-day period, this treatment is exclusively offered to our patients. MFAT Injections use a pioneering technology whereby your body’s own adipose (fat) cells are used to treat pain and inflammation. MFAT Injections are minimally invasive due to the guidance of ultrasound. Altogether the procedure takes about an hour to perform with a minimal recovery time. As well as being a potential alternative to surgery, MFAT Injections can also aid post-surgery recovery.

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC)
BMAC Injections harness the natural healing abilities of your own mesenchymal stem cells, found in the bone marrow, to regenerate and reconstruct the musculoskeletal system by replacing cells and tissues damaged by degenerative diseases or trauma. BMAC Injections treat pain and inflammation by accelerating healing through the assistance of biological growth factors. This minimally invasive, day-case procedure is done under x-ray guidance and has a minimal recovery time. Our innovative BMAC Injections offer an alternative treatment plan to traditional invasive surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP Therapy supports your body’s self-healing processes by using your own cells. Blood is mostly liquid (called plasma) but also contains solid component including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets are important for clotting blood but they also contain proteins called growth factors which are important in the healing of injuries.
With a higher concentration of growth factors than typically found in blood, PRP injections support the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes.
This treatment is widely researched and supported in clinical papers. See our PRP evidence section.
Our expert team works as part of a collaborative partnership of Surgeons, Sports Medicine doctors and Physiotherapists to provide the perfect patient pathway to get you quickly on the road to recovery. Whether you require conventional treatment or if you are a candidate for these new regenerative treatments, you can be sure that will get the best advice from teaching hospital specialists.
