Activated Mesenchymal Pericyte Plasma injections (AMPP®) use the body’s natural capacity to repair damage using cells from adipose (fat) tissue and blood. Adipose tissue has powerful reparative properties which can be used to target degeneration. AMPP is an innovative procedure that combines Lipogems® and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. By harvesting fat and platelets from the patient’s own body the risk factors are low and cells in the damaged area are encouraged to repair and regenerate using the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
AMPP is an effective form of pain relief that can be used as an alternative to invasive surgical procedures. It can help to increase movement in painful joints and can be used in place of physiotherapy, anti-inflammatories or steroid injections. It is minimally invasive, with no major incisions or lengthy recovery times. The procedure is suitable for treating all large joints in the body.
