Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative cells are cells that can promote healing and regeneration of injured or damaged tissue. They are able to do this by secreting growth factors that reduce autoimmune responses and inflammation, and stimulate tissues to regenerate. Stem cells are a type of regenerative cell that have the ability to develop into many other types of cells and tissue, therefore making their use very important in regenerative medicine.
In veterinary medicine regenerative stem cell therapy can be used to treat and improve conditions such as:
- Orthopedic injuries
- Soft tissue reconstruction
- Non-healing wounds
Both the collection of fat and injection of stem cells require the patient to be under general anesthesia. Once the abdomen is shaved and surgically prepped, a small incision is made in the abdomen and 10 grams of fat tissue is collected. Using InGeneron's ARC™ (adipose-derived regenerative cells) tissue processing system, the fat obtained from your pet is processed within 90 minutes. Once the stem cells are prepared they are administered intravenously and/or locally to areas of need reduce inflammation and promote tissue healing.
Initial results of stem cell therapy may be seen as early as one week after injection. In general, after treatment you can expect:
- Increased overall mobility
- Decreased overall pain
- Drastic decrease or elimination of the need for pain medication
- Improved functionality of joints, limbs, neck and back
- Pronounced improvement of some auto-immune disorders (allergies, etc.)
