Stem Cell Therapy In The Veterinary World
A professor from Turkey contacted Dennis M. Lox, MD, 2 years ago for his expertise in stem cells. At the time stem cells were not routinely done in Turkey. Only the patient was not the professor, it was her dog.
Stem cell therapy has been used in veterinary medicine long before its acceptance in human medicine. It was slower to gain popularity in general veterinary medicine because pet owners were not supportive of the expense. This professor, a true dog lover, was willing to go to the same lengths to provide care to her animals.
Does Stem Cell Therapy Work On Animals?
Two years later she reported to Dr. Lox that her dog was doing well and had no noticeable signs of arthritis in the hip. Now, her brother is inquiring about his back pain and stem cell therapy. The grapevine is often long. Dr. Lox has treated many patients from around the world with stem cell therapy to a variety of musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions.
What Else Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
Low back pain is of itself very nonspecific. When dealing with stem cell therapy a specific diagnosis is necessary and Dr. Lox must evaluate the patient to gather more information. Unlike a knee which is complicated, but simplistically much simpler than a spine because the knee is a hinge joint. On the other hand, the lumbar spine is comprised of five vertebrae. Each vertebra has a disc and 2 facet joints, totaling fifteen different joints and the ligaments, muscles, nerves, and spinal cord.
Dr. Lox utilizes an individualized approach to each patient to achieve the best possible results. Dr. Lox was a forefront of stem cell therapy in the United States and has been a frequent lecturer at the national and international level, staying abreast of new developments, and treatment.
