We always get excited when one of our clients reaches a stem cell milestone and we recently announced that Dr. Kim Carlson, a small animal surgeon based in the Bay Area of Northern California, surpassed 300 stem cell processes! She is the first small animal veterinarian to achieve this number of VetStem patients.

Dr. Carlson is a board-certified surgeon who has been utilizing VetStem Cell Therapy since 2007. As one of VetStem’s most prolific users, Dr. Carlson consistently advocates for the integration of stem cell therapy in conjunction with orthopedic surgeries such as cruciate ligament repairs, luxating patella surgery, and fracture repairs.

Many of Dr. Carlson’s patient’s experience great success after treatment with VetStem Cell Therapy, including Oliver, a young Shih Tzu who was successfully treated with stem cells in conjunction with surgery for arthritis in his elbows. One of Dr. Carlson’s most memorable stem cell success stories was that of a search and rescue K9, Yana, who was able to return to work after receiving VetStem Cell Therapy for a partial iliopsoas tear.

Stem cells, with their regenerative capabilities and ability to differentiate into various tissue types, play a pivotal role in reducing pain, inflammation, and the formation of scar tissue. Additionally, they aid in restoring range of motion and stimulating the regeneration of tendon, ligament, and joint tissues. VetStem is proud to partner with veterinarians like Dr. Kim Carlson to provide solutions for animals facing degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and traumatic injuries such as torn ligaments and injured tendons.
