Dr. Lewis Obi Lectures in Santa Monica on Advanced Lasers and Adult Based Stem Cell Applications in Plastic Surgery
Today Dr. Obi returned from Los Angeles after presenting his advanced work in the area of plastic surgery lasers and adult based stem cell grafting. He also shared new cosmetic and reconstructive techniques he has pioneered in his plastic surgery practice.
The audience, comprised of colleagues and industry professionals, received Dr. Obi’s presentation and were given the chance to pose questions about his recent achievements in plastic surgery. They also discussed his in-house clinical research projects as well. Because of Dr. Obi’s extensive involvement in his specialty, he was awarded the first FDA cleared Adivive adult-based stem cell fat processing unit in the United States.
Dr. Lewis Obi is a frequent lecturer and educator as well as a professional consultant for Palomar Medical Technologies (Burlington, MA). Last week Dr. Lewis Obi attended the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in New Orleans which was attended by 3,000 plastic surgeons worldwide. Of special note regarding stem cell research, Dr. Lewis Obi recently submitted a chapter about autologous fat grafting for the face at request of Dr. Melvin Shiffman for his upcoming book on stem cells.
The above patient was one of the earliest patients to be treated with the new Adivive techniques of grafting stem cell concentrated fat. To date, almost 100 patients have been treated with this advanced technology by Dr. Obi.
