Dr. Obi was the first plastic surgeon in the United States to introduce the FDA approved Adivive Fat Processing Unit for stem cell fat grafting and also for the isolation of stromal vascular fraction (SVF adult stem cells). This led Dr. Lewis Obi to join the IRB with the Cell Surgical Network of California in June, 2013, which lead to the creation of The Cell Surgical Network of Florida. CSN Florida offers patients a host of stem cell therapies in conjunction with multiple specialists such as plastic surgery, Orthopedics, Pain Management and Urology. Visit CSN Florida to learn more.
On January 14th of 2014, Dr. Lewis Obi was the lead speaker on cellular science at the annual international meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Obi’s involvement in the advances in the use of Adult Stem Cells and other technology have allowed Dr. Obi to provide patients with the most advanced and minimally invasive aesthetic techniques available, and to perform procedures that result in less down-time at lower costs. “Plastic Surgery in the New Age and the New Economy” has been a key theme of many of Dr. Lewis Obi’s international lectures where he presents these new techniques and technologies to peers around the nation and the world.
More recently in October, 2015. Dr. Obi and The Cell Surgical Network of Florida hosted the 1st Annual Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Symposium in Jacksonville. Hundreds of physicians and medical industry professionals attended presentations, surgical training and stem cell demonstrations.
