Breakthroughs in regenerative medicine have led to a revolutionary new approach in the treatment of animal injuries and diseases. Mark C. Brown, DVM, CCRP, is the first veterinarian in Pinellas County to use this cutting-edge method to treat canine osteoarthritis and other conditions.
Stem Cell Therapy
We are able to isolate stem and regenerative cells from a patient’s adipose (fat cells) tissue. Studies have shown a clinical benefit in utilizing stem and regenerative cells to treat painful conditions such as arthritis, joint pain and cartilage damage in both small and large dogs. We now offer allogenic cells (donor cells) if a dog is not a candidate for a surgical collection of their own stem cells. Call Tampa Bay K9 Rehabilitation Center today to learn how we can help your dog with Stem Cell and other Regeneration Therapies.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
We collect the patient’s own blood and then use a centrifuge to separate the platelets. The platelets are then re-injected into the injured area, releasing growth factors that promote natural tissue healing.
