HACKENSACK, N.J., Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Meadowlands Veterinary Hospital (MVH), a state of the art animal hospital that offers comprehensive pet care, emergency, and specialist services, is adding new, cutting-edge, options to its catalog: stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma, and cryosurgery.
“Advances in veterinary medicine and surgery have been keeping close pace with those in human medicine and surgery. Over the last two decades medical technology and techniques have progressed rapidly,” notes Dr. Jessica Silver, owner and administrator at MVH. “And we’ve worked very hard to make the best, most current technologies and techniques available to treat our pets’ conditions.”
In veterinary medicine, stem cell therapy is used most often for degenerative disorders in pets and companion animals. Stem cells reduce inflammation, scar tissue, pain, and damage and can be used to treat almost any time of inflammatory condition, such as osteoarthritis.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used on humans for a variety of orthopedic conditions, including tendon/ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, muscle injuries, meniscal tears, cartilage defects, fractures, total joint arthroplasties, and others. In veterinary medicine, PRP has most often been reported for tendon/ligament injuries and osteoarthritis and can be used for several other conditions like ocular ulcers, nonhealing wounds, and skin grafts.
Cryosurgery is a non-invasive, “no cut” method for removing unwanted tissue from a patient. Cryosurgery is especially useful in managing benign, premalignant, and malignant lesions.
