Title Autologous Fat Grafting for Treating Pain at Amputation Sites: A Prospective Randomized Trial
Description The goal of this research study is to apply minimally invasive fat grafting to improve pain syndromes at amputation sites and result in improved ability to fit and use a prosthesis. The procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis. We will test two different methods of preparing the fat graft, including a regenerative medicine approach, and measure both physical function and quality of life during a 6 month post-surgical follow-up period. The total duration of participation is approximately 8 months for each subject.
