"Surgery with Doctor Lagrasso - Miami, FL - I have been wanting to do this procedure for a while. I had shape, but wanted my waist to be smaller and much more defined. I was really unhappy with how I looked and this seemed like a great alternative. After searching through several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Lagrasso. His bed side manner is truly impeccable, he is patient, professional, and super detailed. I could not be happier with my choice. Today was my surgery, and even though I'm super swollen, bruised, and in ridiculous amounts of pain, I can already see the conturing in my body's shape. I am very hopeful that once the swelling goes down, my body will look like I always dreamed it to. I am staying in the recovery home of Miriam landford, and honestly, I don't know what I would do without her. She has tended lovingly to every single one of my needs. From making me delicious healthy fresh foods to help me gain my strength again, to keeping me warm, comfortable, as well as managing my medications as well. Her house is quiet, peaceful, relaxing, immaculately clean, and beautiful. I couldn't be happier with my choices. Now just waiting for the pain and swelling to go away :("- K. / RealSelf / Oct 17, 2016
We will begin this treatment by extracting stem cells from your adipose fat tissue or bone marrow aspiration. Dr. LaGrasso and his team of highly-trained medical staff will assist him in completing this treatment that will take about 3 hours. We will perform a mini-liposuction treatment to remove about 120 cc units of fat while you are under a local anesthetic. Then, the we will separate the fat from the stem cells in a centrifuge. Once isolated, the stem cells can be injected back into your body where needed.
If liposuction is not a possible avenue for you to acquire your stem cells, we can also perform a bone marrow aspiration under a local anesthetic to retrieve the cells. This will remove about 60 cc units of bone marrow. Then, the process is the same. The bone marrow will be inserted into a centrifuge to separate the marrow from the stem cells. It is then ready to be injected back into your body.
Keep in mind that you will not feel immediate relief from pain with stem cell injections, however, this can impact the rate at which your body heals or repairs itself from inflammation and/or traumatic injury.
During/After The Treatment
We hope to make your experience as comfortable as possible. You may be sore for a few days after the treatment. However, you should be able to resume activities as normal without limitations. If you experience side effects or think you may have an infection in the injection site, please call our office immediately for assistance.

Stem Cell FAQs
The stem cell injection candidates will be adults who have pain or inflammation in their joints, such as the knees, shoulders, elbows, and more. This treatment requires a consultation before treatment can begin. If you think you may be a candidate for stem cell injections, please call and set up a time to discuss all of your options with Dr. LaGrasso.
When Will I Feel A Difference?
Every patient will react to the stem cell injections differently. Keep in mind that it will not be an immediate relief of pain. You may also be additionally sore for several days after the treatment just from the procedure itself as well.
Will You Use My Stem Cells?
Yes. We use the patient's own stem cells in this treatment. This reduces the potential side effects of the therapy. Since we use your stem cells, you will have minimal risks, but may still have some irritation from the injection site and/or risk a possible infection at the site of treatment. We can discuss all the benefits and risks to this treatment at your consultation appointment.
