Wichita Equine Vet Has Success With Stem Cell Therapy
"I am so grateful to Dr. Preston Hickman for his wonderful, kind and skilled care of my dressage horse Zoe. She had previously been shown at Prix St. George level, but had been retired even though she was only 12 years old because of a ligament injury, and was expected never to be completely sound again. She was completely lame when I brought her to Dr. H in June of 2012. At that time, Zoe had an injured ligament , as well as a fractured seismoid bone, in her right front leg. There was little hope or expectation that she would ever recuperate enough to be fully sound again. Dr. Hickman suggested a new cutting edge procedure known as Stem Cell Therapy for Zoe. This procedure was completed in one day at Dr. H’s clinic, and I took her home the same day.
