Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine at Yankee Hill Veterinary Hospital

We offer regenerative medicine therapies that include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and bone marrow-derived Stem Cells. These therapies use the body’s own cells to help regenerate and heal acute and chronic conditions.

Platelet Rich Plasma

(PRP) can help heal and regenerate tissue by recruiting growth factors and cells to the injured area to clean up dead and injured cells and help with tissue regeneration.

Stem Cells

Derived from your pet’s bone marrow have the ability to become any type of cell as well as recruit surrounding stem cells to aid in tissue regeneration and repair.

What conditions can regenerative Medicine help?

  • Osteoarthritis (conditions such as hip dysplasia, knee, wrist, shoulder and elbow arthritis).
  • Tendon and Ligament injuries (i.e., cruciate ligament injury).
  • Muscle injuries
  • Some spinal cord conditions

What results can I expect after a treatment?

Therapeutic improvement such as improved mobility and decreased pain can be seen for 6-12 months in the majority of patients.

How do I know if my pet would benefit from these therapies?

There is a growing field of research on the benefits of PRP and Stem Cells. Please schedule an appointment with our doctors to determine if these therapies would help you beloved pet.
