Pet Stem Cell Therapy
We offer stem cell therapy at Village Vet Animal Clinic to aid in the repair, regeneration, and improved function of damaged or diseased tissue.
Pet Stem Cell Therapy in Broken Arrow
A primary focus of regenerative medicine has been the use of multipotent stem cells, which are able to develop into a variety of different cell types, potentially enabling the repair, regeneration, and improved function of damaged or diseased tissue.
Techniques have been developed over the past decade to facilitate the use of autologous stem cells, which are cells derived from a patient’s own adipose (fat) tissue. Cells derived from adipose tissue are known as mesenchymal stem cells. They may differentiate into cells that form tissues such as bone, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
The stem cells are extracted, purified, and concentrated, then injected directly into regions of the body needing treatment. Once collected and processed, cells may also be grown in the lab to expand their numbers and stored for use at a future time.
Current applications for stem cell therapy (SCT) in veterinary medicine include tendon and ligament injuries and osteoarthritis. Research is presently underway at multiple institutions to explore the potential use of stem cells in an array of other conditions, including immune-mediated disease and organ dysfunction.
No matter the case, the Village Vet Animal Clinic team will make sure you completely understand the stem cell therapy treatment process before it is administered.
