Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is intended to stimulate healing and regenerate injured tissues by utilizing stem cells derived from the horse's own body. These adult stem cells have the ability to divide and differentiate into bone, tendon, or ligament cells. The type of tissue into which the cells are injected determines which type of cell they will become. 

Equine Medical Associates utilizes adipose (fat) derived stem cells for the treatment of injuries. A small amount of fat is collected from the horse and is sent to the Vet-Stem lab for processing. The stem cells are shipped back and can be immediately injected.
