REGENERATIVE MEDICINE & Stem Cell Therapy

Wikipedia defines Regenerative Medicine as the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves.

What then about Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy?
A fat sample is taken from your pet, the stem cells are harvested, stem cells are harvested from the sample, and the concentrated stem cells are injected back into your pet in the affected area.

How are the fat samples obtained?
After a physical examination and routine tests to make sure your pet is a good surgical candidate, your pet is briefly anesthetized, and a sample is surgical taken from a pre-determined location.

What do the stem cells do after they injected back into my pet?
Stem cells have been proven to be anti-inflammatory, differentiate into tissue, home to injury site, and provide immune modulation.
