What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative Medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissue to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to injury, disease, age or congenital defect. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissue and organs in the body by simulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves. Regenerative Medicine can improve the quality of life by supporting and activating the animal’s natural healing process.

Regenerative Medicine is the most exciting innovation in veterinary medicine in many years. By harnessing the body’s own mechanisms for healing itself, Regenerative Medicine has opened the door to numerous exciting new options for the treatment of devastating injuries and debilitating diseases such as bone fractures, arthritis, and tendon and ligament injuries.

The potential of stem cells, platelet-rich plasma as well as other regenerative therapies are practically unlimited and as the science advances many stimulating new applications are being unleashed. Regenerative Medicine is the future.
