The Center For Morton’s Neuroma Offers New treatment for Fat Pad Atrophy

The Center for Morton’s Neuroma announces new treatment for fat pad atrophy.

September 16, 2019 / / —

Fat pad atrophy is the loss of the fat cushioning in the balls of the feet. This leads to pain while walking, often starting with the sensation of having a rock in the shoe. Fat pad atrophy is fat tissue breakdown that does not repair or reverse with time. It is sometimes the result of natural aging but it may also be caused by cortisone injections, which are often used as a temporary pain relief for people with Morton’s neuroma foot pain or Metatarsalgia.

For a long time, fat pad atrophy has been incurable as the fat will not repair or regrow by itself. This has been a major issue for people with the condition whose foot bones have been more vulnerable as a result. But now, The Center for Morton’s Neuroma can offer a brand new treatment for fat pad atrophy: lipostem.

Lipostem is the painless injection of the patient’s own fat, together with their platelet-rich plasma, directly into their fat pad. The procedure is done under ultrasound guidance. The treatment has been developed from recent studies, which took fat from patient’s thighs or buttocks, together with platelet-rich plasma from a small blood sample, and showed a long term, positive effect to repair the fat atrophy. The results have been amazing, restoring comfort and function to people who had been struggling with the condition and who previously thought that there was no chance of recovery.

For patients at The Center for Morton’s Neuroma, lipostem is a simple, non-surgical solution that can be completed in a single, painless visit. First, the patient's blood is taken from the arm and is centrifuged (spun at high speed) to separate the platelet-rich plasma. While the blood is spinning, a small amount of fat is taken from the patient’s buttocks in a mini liposuction procedure. This is done under a local anesthetic and is completely painless. The fat is also processed on site and is then injected, with the plasma, into the fat pad area under ultrasound guidance. The whole process takes between 1 and 2 hours and full recovery takes up to 4 weeks but the results will last.

WASHINGTON — Responding to stinging criticism, President Donald Trump has abruptly reversed his plan to hold the next year's Group of Seven world leaders' meeting at his Doral golf resort in Florida.

NEW YORK — RJ Barrett kept misfiring, a rough start to his college reunion week at Madison Square Garden.

Impeachment dominates, but much other work awaits Congress

Oct 20, 2019

WASHINGTON — Impeachment may have leapfrogged to the top of the national agenda, but members of Congress still have their day jobs as legislators, and they're returning to work this week with mixed hopes of success. It's a difficult-to-predict time when it comes to possible deals between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who's kicked off the impeachment inquiry. An important trade agreement has a pulse. An effort to deal with prescription drug prices seems stuck. Divided government has produced scant results thus far, except for a small-scale budget deal that lawmakers are struggling to put in place....

Long a New Mexico icon, Spanish conquistador faces attacks

Oct 20, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Spanish conquistador, a New Mexico icon that has long been celebrated in art and honored at festivals as a homage to Hispanic heritage, is under attack. A new generation of Native American and Latino activists in the state is demanding that conquistador images and reenactments be removed from schools, seals and celebrations. They say the figure's connection to colonialism and indigenous genocide makes the conquistador outdated. Elena Ortiz of the Native American advocacy group Red Nation says activists want the conquistador expunged from public spaces to revise the region's narrative about itself. She says the conquistador...
