Orthopedic Conditions

Joint problems are common in dogs; fortunately, research on stem cell therapy suggests an enduring and efficient solution for regeneration. Cartilage does not heal itself as most other tissues because chondrocytes rarely replicate or repair. Hence the objective of regenerative treatment is to promote cartilage healing, decrease inflammation, pain and secure return of the functionality of the damaged cartilage. Timely intervention, guided by the veterinarian's advice, is essential for effectively addressing the condition which includes:

Orthopedic Conditions Treatment
  • Osteoarthritis: Knee (Patella), Hip, Elbow, Shoulder, Spine
  • Dysplasia: Hip, Shoulder, Patella (Knee Cap), Spinal, Carpal Joint (Waist) - Front Leg.
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL): Usually Knee Joint
  • Usually Knee Joint

Target Goals:

  • Reduce inflammation to minimize further damage and discomfort.
  • Protect, support, and repair cartilage.
  • Improve dog's mobility and flexibility for more comfortable movement.
  • Promote tissue regeneration and recovery at injury sites.
  • Prevent or delay degenerative processes associated with the condition.
  • Enhance the repair of the damaged CCL and surrounding tissues.
  • Help regulate long term joint health.

Note:The target goals may vary depending on the severity of the condition and the individual dog's response to treatment. While the treatment aims to have gratifying results to improve the quality of life, it's essential to establish realistic expectations in consultation with the vet familiar with stem cells.
