Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy at Stonebridge Animal Hospital in McKinney, Texas

Stem cell regenerative therapy is leading-edge medical technology that sets McKinney’s Stonebridge Animal Hospital apart in the north Texas area.  Dr. Mapes is fully certified in this branch of medicine, and our hospital has successfully treated patients with crippling arthritic conditions that could otherwise only be treated with surgeries such as total hip replacement.

What Do Stem Cells Do?

Veterinary Animal Clinic McKinney TX

Using the hips as an example, two total hip replacement surgeries, which are painful, require weeks of healing time, and have the risk of infection or failure, would cost between $9,000 – $10,000.  We can treat both hips for less than 1/3 of that cost, and do so without the pain of healing and rehab.

We use stem cell regenerative medicine to treat virtually any arthritic condition, and the technology is advancing to help animals with kidney failure, allergic dermatitis, and other diseases.

At Stonebridge Animal Hospital, we’re proud to offer Vet-Stem Regenerative Cell Therapy to our patients in McKinney, TX.  Thousands of dogs have now been treated with stem cells from their own fat for arthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, and muscle injuries.

What is the Process?

Stem cells are processed from your pet’s own fat.
