Equine Regenerative Medicine at UF

Stem cell, platelet-rich plasma and autologous-conditioned serum therapies are forms of regenerative medicine that originate from the horse’s own body and are used to improve the healing process. Common uses for equine regenerative medicine are tendon & ligament injuries, cartilage damage, osteoarthritis, fractures and wound repair.
