Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine
Stem Cells are extracted from your pet’s fatty tissue, and processed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into an injectable solution, which is then activated using LED Light technology. Following activation, the solution is then injected intra-articular (i.e. directly into arthritic joints) as well as intravenously. This is a same day procedure with no serious side effects, no extensive recovery time, or confinement needed.
Cryobanking Stem Cells
Given the right conditions in an animal’s body, stem cells can differentiate into various cell types, such as cartilage, bone and muscle, endothelium, pancreatic cells, etc.
Researchers believe that stem cells hold the key to managing many diseases. Right now, regenerative medicine is labeled to treat only arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases, but researchers are looking at stem cells to help treat internal medicine problems, such as atopy and inflammatory bowel disease.
- Eliminate Future Cost and Risk:
By harvesting tissue for stem cells while your pet is under general anesthesia for another procedure (spay & neuter,cherry eye, entropion, tail amputation, elongated soft palate, stenotic nares, orthopedics like Medial Patella Luxation and Anterior Cruciate Tare, Cesarean, etc) you are eliminating the cost and risk of future anesthesia.
- Eliminate Age Related Anesthetic Risk:
The risks of an adverse event occurring during anesthesia are higher as your pet grows older
- Minimal Extra Anesthetic:
Harvesting the adipose tissue for the cryobanked stem cells is a quick procedure that only adds a few minutes to the elected anesthetic protocol.
