Safari Differences

Cryopreservation – The ability to store fresh stem cells locally and not have to ship them to laboratory across the country

On-Site Processing – Insuring that the stem cells are viable in high numbers when used to treat your pet – others veterinarians must collect the fatty tissue then send it off for processing, then the cell preparation is sent back for administration to the pet. All of which takes time during which the cells are dying.

On-Site Cell Counting – Requiring special stains and special microscopes to determine percent viability
Biologic Safety Hood – Maintains sterility while handling fatty tissue prevents contamination of the stem cell preparation. Other veterinarians may have on-site processing kits and centrifuge they do not have the biological safety cabinet to ensure sterility and do not have the ability to know how many live cells they are injecting.

Advanced Protocols – based on recent research – more effective stem cell harvesting and preservation techniques.

Stem Cell Culturing – to allow for differentation of stem cells into more effective cell types such as cardiomyocytes and to expand cells that have been in cryostorage

Rehabilitation – For Neurologic Recover and Spinal Cord Recovery as well as for when ligamenets tendons and muscles are healing

Neurosurgery – Placement of Stem Cells into Space around the spinal cord

MRI – Diagnostics for Spinal and Brain Disease at Safari we have access to a human MRI facility which we use to locate the lesion and injection of stem cells into the exact location of damage is very important in therapeutic success.

Ultrasound – Guided Injections into Joints, ligaments, tendon or even the sac around the heart.

Fluoroscopy – Guided Injections into Spine and Joints. C-Arm fluoro radiography allows video radiographs to be taken while the needle is advanced into the area of damage.
