NEW! Peer-reviewed articles on the use of stem cell therapy:
The Orthobiologic Innovations Center for Regenerative Medicine at VOSM has been providing stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma treatments for patients since 2008, making VOSM one of the first sub-specialty facilities in the country to offer such promising treatments to its patients.
The Center offers in-house stem cell collection and processing as well as stem cell culturing from its local university collaborators. The regenerative medicine laboratory at VOSM is equipped with advanced technology enabling the processing of bone marrow or fat-derived stem cells as well as platelet-rich plasma.
The Center is currently using regenerative medicine technology for the treatment of soft tissue injuries (tendons and ligaments) and osteoarthritis, as well as neurological conditions.
We are actively engaged in numerous clinical trials to objectively assess treatment response to various regenerative medicine processing techniques, combination therapies and treatment protocols. For more information on clinical trials, please see our page on the current American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation Clinical Trial at VOSM.
Dr. Sherman Canapp, Director of the Center, has the privilege of collaborating with leaders in the field of human regenerative medicine with Drs. Victor Ibrahim and May Jacobson and equine medicine with Dr. Jennifer Barrett.
