New Treatment for Hip Dysplasia

New Treatment for Hip Dysplasia

BioScaffold Implantation


Azzore Veterinary Specialists is pleased to announce a new minimally invasive treatment for dogs with chronic hip dysplasia: BioScaffold implantation. Bioscaffold is engineered collagen which allows the patient’s naturally produced stem cells to function like fetal stem cells, decreasing inflammation and modifying diseased cartilage, bone and connective tissue to a more normal healthy state. In a series of clinical trials, dogs with chronic hip dysplasia had significantly decreased pain and improved function for over 9 months time with a single implant. Ideal candidates for this procedure would be dogs that are not candidates for total hip replacement due to costs or age, or dogs that are not tolerant of NSAID therapy.
