The use of intra-articular biologics for preventative or therapeutic purposes has become mainstay in equine orthopaedics and the number of regenerative treatment options available to equine practitioners has significantly increased. How do the different types of biologics compare? What advantages and disadvantages does each one have? Are some better suited for certain types of conditions? What treatment protocols promise the best results? How should biologics be combined with surgical procedures? The multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned specialists consists of an Equine Surgeon & Biologics Researcher, an Equine Olympic Team Vet and a Human Orthopedic Surgeon & Specialist in Regenerative Medicine. The discussion will be moderated by one of the world’s top equine regenerative medicine expert.
