Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell research is an emerging field that is clouded in a lot of controversy. A stem cell is a young cell that is not yet specialized. The beauty of stem cells is they can become any tissue in the body. Since stem cells are used by the body to make new tissues, naturally, veterinarians have sought after the ability to harvest stem cells and use them to target their efforts to regenerate damaged tissue.
With our revolutionary techniques, we are able to isolate stem cells from the animal’s own fat cells. Stem cell therapy is not currently allowed in human medicine in the United States. By allowing stem cell therapy on animals this allows veterinarians to provide higher quality treatment to animals than medical doctors are able to provide to their patients. Now you can say that you treat your animal better than you treat yourself and actually be correct.

- Soft tissue reconstruction
The rapid, minimally invasive procedure takes about 90 minutes and is a single out-patient procedure. Results can be seen in as little as 1 week. Both M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Tulane University have been involved in over 40 peer-reviewed studies which looked at the positive effects of the technology we use in our clinic.
