The Institute, founded by renowned Professor Dr. med. Philip Schoettle and Priv. -Doz. Dr. med. Armin Keshmiri, in addition to his international Reputation in the area of knee and hip replacement surgery, especially as a pioneer for orthopaedic tissue – and cell therapy.
Knee & Hip Institute, Munich will be applied to all of the latest medical research findings and innovations in order to perform treatments. Any intervention is tailored to the diagnosis of the patient from the initial examination to post-operative care.
Regenerative medicine as a Healing aid for joint wear and tear
Almost every third adult in Germany suffers from osteoarthritis, a progressive wear and tear disease of at least one joint. Individually for each stage, helps to alleviate the osteoarthritis so far, by using medication or through a surgical procedure. It came first to the damage to the cartilage, they are not able to regenerate itself, and the destroyed tissue to rebuild, which is why the cartilage was long considered a non-curable fabric. An artificial joint replacement with prostheses often remained the only choice to alleviate the Suffering.
pain relief and tissue repair by the body’s own healing with autologous fat Transplantation
A regenerative joint homeostasis by autologous fat therapy aims, the metabolic balance (homeostasis) of the joint, to reduce inflammation, to protect the cartilage from further damage and to allow a Regeneration. The body is encouraged to set a regenerative process that supports the body’s own healing forces.
so Far, stem cells for regenerative treatment have been obtained the method from the bone marrow. In the meantime, we know that the body’s fat contains a lot of multi-potent stem cells, about 1,000 times more than bone marrow. This innovative therapy by means of autologous fat Transplantation, also called AMFAT therapy can be treated both acute and chronic (sports)injuries, and degenerative diseases that were previously treated surgically, by the use of the body’s own tissues and cells. AMFAT stands for: autologous micro-fragmented adipose tissue, so the body’s own micro-fragmented adipose tissue.
