Using state-of-the-art equipment, AMC has the ability to collect stem cells from your animal's own fat tissue and put them back into the body where they are most needed.
Stem cell therapy is relatively new technology with outstanding results in the human and animal fields. This technique can be used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament trauma, seasonal allergies, and more.
Regenerative Medicine harnesses the power of the body's own cells and proteins to promote healing by regenerating tissue after trauma. The goal of regenerative medicine is to bring injured tissue back to its original pristine condition. Many tissues can benefit, such as tendon, ligament, and cartilage.
The Regenerative Medicine Service offers a myriad of regenerative therapies to promote healing for both horses and dogs. Stem cells and progenitor cells are extraordinary because they can grow and divide many times, while other cells in the body that have become functionally specialized cannot. Stem cells are also remarkable because they are able to form multiple types of tissue, for example cartilage, bone, or tendon, through a process of specialization called differentiation.
The use of the body’s own stem cells is a promising therapy for tendon, ligament, and soft tissue injuries. Cells can be isolated from bone marrow, adipose tissue, and tendon tissue then grown to adequate quantities in our laboratory. Enough cells can be grown so that a surplus can be saved for future use.
These cells possess the ability to multiply and give rise to the specific type of tissue that has been damaged, thus allowing for accelerated and natural healing to occur. They also inhibit inflammation and recruit other stem cells into the lesion. We recommend this therapy for tendon and joint injuries.
