Dr. Todd Malan is considered one of the true pioneers of fat-derived stem cell therapies in the USA. In October of 2009, Dr. Malan was the first U.S. physician to utilize adipose or fat derived stem cells for soft tissue reconstruction. He has described his techniques and experience as an author in two medical textbooks as well as having presented at dozens of stem cell conferences worldwide.
Dr. Malan has been pivotal in developing safe protocols for stem cell harvesting and deployment for regenerative medicine and has trained hundreds of physicians worldwide in the safe and effective use of adipose-derived stem cells. Dr. Malan began to seek out ways to utilize adipose stem cells for regenerative applications after a close family member was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Dr. Malan now divides his practice time into cosmetic stem cell procedures and regenerative medicine research for patients with chronic disease and degenerative disorders.
Dr. Malan frequently works in Europe with other global Stem Cell experts and has been the first to introduce several new stem cell technologies in the US. Dr. Malan is a nationally recognized speaker and educator on advanced body sculpting, and stem cell enriched fat transfer. He is a frequent guest speaker for organizations such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Dr. Malan also has been featured many times in the media for his advances in stem cell assisted fat transfer techniques.
Dr. Malan received his Bachelors Degree from Brigham Young University and continued his studies at the University of Arizona College of Medicine where he graduated in the top 10 percent of his class in May 1993. He completed his residency at Walter Reed Army and Bethesda Naval hospitals in Washington, D.C. Dr. Malan is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
