Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy has received quite a bit of attention in the news, as it relates to humans. Unlike the controversy surrounding human stem cell research, we use an animal's own stem cells, harvested from fat tissue. The benefits of stem cell treatments for dogs, cats and horses suffering from arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other joint afflictions is enormous.
Traditionally, the treatment for these conditions has been to administer medication to treat the pain. Now, using this breakthrough therapy, the pain and inflammation can be reduced in a far more natural way. Not only is pain relieved, but the therapy can actually help repair and regenerate damaged tissue.
The process takes only 3 days, from the harvesting of the tissue, to the injection of the stem cells into the animal.
Day 1 -- We collect fat tissue, which is rich in stem cells. This is typically done with the animal under anesthesia.
Day 2 -- The tissue is process in a manner that concentrates the cells.
Day 3 -- We inject the cells back into the afflicted area. This is done under sedation or local anesthesia.
Dr. Leadbeater has performed over 500 TPLO procedures , with an exceptional success rate. If your pet has experienced any sudden hind leg pain or lameness, or you simply desire further information on the TPLO procedure, we will be more than happy to schedule a consultation with Dr. Leadbeater.
The knee joint, or stifle joint, in dogs is in most respects very similar to our own. All of the problems that you know occur in our knees also can occur in dogs. These include meniscal injury, anterior, or cranial cruciate tears and ruptures.
The most common cause of sudden onset of lameness in the hind legs of dogs is the tearing of the cranial cruciate ligament. This rupture produces severe instability in the stifle joint, that is inflammatory and painful. Within 4 weeks of an unattended ruptured ligament, x-rays show the beginning of arthritic development.
So what is Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy
Surgical procedures to recreate stability in the joint have changed and evolved over the past 50 years. However, the Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, or TPLO, has proved to be most successful to date, in correcting the problem and preventing ongoing development of arthritis, when performed by an experienced surgical team.
