Welcome Reception
More than 200 in attendance
Our staff, pictured here, in attendance at the reception for Dr. Murray on the 9th of December where more than 200 guests and dignitaries attended the event. In addition to introducing Dr. Murray, the guests were provided with an art and clinic tour of our 12,000 square foot facility. Attendees from Los Angeles, New York, Boston and other distant locations were impressed with the display of world class art at the clinic. A Harpist and Violist played in concert with the other festivities of the evening. The Samuel Wells Surgicenter at the clinic displayed the latest laser technology in the area of laser lipolysis (Slim Lipo platform) as well as the Novadaq Spy imaging system. Dr. John Murray, Dr. Lewis Obi and Memorial Medical Center will be the first Jacksonville providers of this revolutionary technology vital for enhancing results of reconstructive breast procedures.

After three years of active personal effort and ten years of professional interaction, I have finally integrated Dr. John D. Murray into my practice. Mr. Jim Wood, CEO of HCA Memorial Medical Center was equally impressed with the talents and background of Dr. Murray and therefore I want to thank him for his supporting role in bringing Dr. John Murray to the Jacksonville community. I know that after eight years of plastic surgery leadership at the Susan Komen/University of Illinois, Dr. Murray will be intensely missed by his colleagues and patients. We also want to welcome Dr. Murrayʼs beautiful wife Dr. Paige Murray and their two precious daughters Madison and Megan.

Soon after Dr. Murrayʼs arrival in November we jointly performed our first bilateral mastectomy reconstruction at Memorial Hospital. With the support of HCA Columbia, Dr. Murray is actively working on bringing the first Nasdaq Spy imaging unit to Jacksonville. This advanced technology allows the surgeon to visualize circulation in breast flaps during surgery so as to avoid tissue loss during the post-operative period. Another first for Jacksonville is the use of Palomarʼs Lipokit which Dr. Murray discusses in this newsletter.

Using Fat in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery:
a novel technique

Dr. John D. Murray

Excess fat is our friend, when used in the right places!  Using one's own unwanted fat, to give a more youthful appearance to the face or to improve the shape of a reconstructed breast, has been performed for the last 20 years.  However, the amount of fat that survived has traditionally been unpredictable and often discouraging.  But, concentrating the unwanted fat may significantly improve fat survival!

To that end, we wish to introduce the Lipokit! The Lipokit (Medikhan, Republic of Korea) is an all-in-one FDA approved medical device for collecting, filtering, and transferring one's own fat for use in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.  Most importantly, this technology filters the fat to its cellular components.  Doing so may encourage the fat cells to more reliably perform sub-cellular activities, thus improving chances of their survival and the cosmetic or reconstructive result!

We are excited to be one of the first plastic surgical centers in the United States to use this technology.
