World's First Affordable In-House Stem Cell Procedure Kit


What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cells are the body’s repair cells.  They have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body.  Stem cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and nerve to name a few.  They even possess the ability to replicate into organs such as the heart, liver, intestines, pancreas, etc.


What are the different types of stem cells?
There are two basic types of stem cells; embryonic and somatic (adult). 
Embryonic stem cells are found in the placenta and embryo.  These cells are called totipotent, which means they have the ability to reproduce into any mature cell type.  While embryonic stem cells offer the greatest potential in healing, there are obviously moral and ethical concerns in harvesting these cells. 

The second type of stem cell is the adult stem cell.  These stem cells are called multipotent, which means they can differentiate into closely related cell lines, but they are not capable of creating a complete organ.  Adult stem cells are found in the bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), skin, liver, blood vessels, and neurons.  Contrary to embryonic stem cells, there are no moral or ethical concerns in harvesting these cells, activating them, and reintroducing them back to the patient in areas where healing and regeneration is needed. 


So why do we take the cells from adipose (fat) tissue?
Adult stem cells are highly concentrated in the fat tissue.  There are 50 to 1,000 times more stem cells in the fat than the bone marrow.  At this concentration, it is no longer necessary to culture the stem cells to acquire the necessary cell numbers to make a healing impact.  The procedure to extract fat from the patient is much quicker and less invasive than a spay.  The stem cells are contained within a pool of cells in the fat termed the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF).  The SVF may impart anti-inflammatory effects, add bioactive peptides, and contribute to reformation and architectural organization.  These are benefits lost once stem cells are cultured. 


So what can we do with the stem cells?
Adult stem cells are capable of dividing into many different cell types.  With this capability, we can use them as a treatment for joint injuries, ligament and tendon damage, and fractured bones.  Research and clinical trials currently support the use of stem cells in these conditions.  Ongoing research is targeting other areas of the body for treatment and the preliminary results are very encouraging.

So what makes MediVet America’s technology better?
With our patented LED technology and by incorporating Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) – the same treatment used by many sports professionals, Veterinary Stem Cell, Stem Cell Therapy for Pets, Adipose Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Horses, Adipose Stem Cell Treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma Dogs is able to acquire the most living stem cells of any company currently offering this technology.  If your beloved pet is going to have to endure the surgical procedure, we want to make sure they are going to get the most out of it!  Veterinary Stem Cell, Stem Cell Therapy for Pets, Adipose Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Horses, Adipose Stem Cell Treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma Dogs also offers Cryobanking, where you can store extra cells from the procedure for future use.


So how will the procedure work?
The day of the procedure, the veterinarian will anesthetize your pet.  They will surgically remove a couple tablespoons of fat.  This is a quick and simple procedure that is generally easier than performing a spay.  They will then process the fat to remove the stem cells.  Processing generally takes a couple of hours.  After the stem cells have been collected, your pet will generally be sedated and the stem cells will be administered into the affected joints and/or into the bloodstream.  It is important that you do not feed your pet the night before the procedure.  


When will I see results?
We expect you to see results!  While we know every animal is different and there are no guarantees, we have seen positive clinical improvement in 95% of the arthritic cases performed nationwide.  Some owners have even reported seeing a difference in as little as a week!  While quick results are possible, we expect you to begin seeing improvement within the first 90 days following treatment.  Really bad arthritis may require multiple injections, so banking your extra cells is always a good idea!


Is this procedure safe?
As with any procedure that involves anesthesia, there is always a risk.  However, the stem cells are coming from your pet and are being re-administered back to your pet.  There is no risk of an allergic reaction.  In rare casesthere might be a mild immune reaction in the injected joint that should subside within a day or two.

 

Michael Hutchinson, DVM PA:
“My independent research verifying MediVet's superior results in stem cell count and activation has made me a staunch believer. Talk to your vet today to see if Stem Cell Therapy is an option for your pet.
 
 

Brian Voynick, DVM NJ:
 
“I've been performing adipose derived stem cell procedures on dogs since 2005. At that time, I had to send our patients fat sample to an outside lab in California and wait 48 hours for their stem cells to be delivered back to our hospital for injection.

Now, as of August, 2010, thanks to outstanding technical advancements through MediVet America, we have the equipment and technology to perform the entire stem cell procedure in a half day in our hospital at a much more affordable cost to our clients. Another huge difference is that our dogs and cats stem cells are now “activated by using the patients platelets (or P.R.P. Platelet Rich Plasma) and red, yellow and green light stimulation , which allows us to deliver more “turbo charged¯ stem cells to our patients. Our results have been incredibly gratifying as our arthritic patients have shown remarkable improvement!

 
  Kenneth O'Hanlon, DVM OK:

“The results to the stem cell treatment has far surpassed my expectations and I was expecting a lot.¯

 
 
Eva Beyer, DVM AZ:
"Stem cell therapy extends the lives of arthritic pets,
by vastly improving their quality of life - even better than it was with pain medications."
 
  Catherine White, DVM KY:
“I ultrasounded the tendon of a horse we did a MediVet stem cell procedure on 1 month ago. The results are close to unimaginable. The defect is completely gone, the tendon is thicker than normal, but there is no determinable defect. We are floored! Did two stem cells on dogs hips this week. I am going to try to post before and after when we get them back for rechecks! Exciting!¯
 
 


Dr. Joseph Yocum, Lexington, KY:

“I am very impressed with the adipose derived stem cell kits developed by MediVet-America and have seen remarkable results in the horses that I have treated.¯


 

Dr. Dena Fitzpatrick, Bardstown, KY:

“This is going to do for the medical industry what the Industrial Revolution did 100 years ago, It's just going to change medicine altogether.

 

 

Dr. Keith Niesenbaum, DVM, NY

"Stem cell therapy has shown great promise in the treatment of degenerative joint disease in our patients.  
However, historically it has been very expensive. MediVet
s new technology allows us to perform the procedure from harvest to injection in the same day.  This keeps the cost to a fraction of what it was before and makes it easier for clients to schedule treatments for their pets.  We are overjoyed at the results that we are getting and have fully integrated MediVet Stem Cell technology into our practice."

Veterinary Specialty Center Buffalo Grove, IL

'The results of our first three patients have sold us on the Medivet-America process. Response of our patients and satisfaction of their human families has been outstanding. Adopting on-site collection, processing and administration has even improved employee morale. It has helped us to successfully care for patients with improved outcome, increased efficiency and lower cost for our clients. It has truly been win-win-win and we look forward to helping many more dogs in the Chicagoland area.'

"Offering Stem Cell therapy might be the best thing I have done since I became a Vet..... no, it's probably the best thing I will do in my career!"
