Greeley, United States – July 24, 2014

/PressCable/ — Powell Veterinary Services is expanding to help pets in the Greeley, Colorado area. They offer services that are not common in a country setting, such as orthopedic surgery plus stem cell and low-level laser therapy. Powell Vet Service specializes in treating these bone and joint problems in pets.

Mark Powell DVM heads the team and has over 30 years experience in orthopedic procedures. He worked closely with Dr. Donald Piermattei who was the head of surgery at Colorado State University and was well known for his textbooks on orthopedics. Dr. Powell has also attended numerous post-graduate studies in orthopedics.

Some conditions that may need orthopedic surgery include:
- Fractures – Degenerative joint disease – Luxating patella – Hip dysplasia – Elbow dysplasia – Ligament rupture

Dr. Powell has treated many dogs who have torn the cruciate ligament in a rear leg using an extra-capsular technique, rather than the popular TPLO (Tibia Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery. Outcomes are comparable with this procedure, but at a lower cost.

He is also certified for Vet-Stem Inc. stem cell transplants and for Penn-HIP evaluations. Penn-HIP evaluates hips in puppies as young as 16 weeks of age in order to reduce the frequency and severity of hip dysplasia. It is often used to make decisions about potential breeding stock at a younger age. Stem cell therapy it is being used to improve orthopedic soft tissue (tendon, ligament) injuries, bone fractures, arthritis, inflammation and conditions such as hip dysplasia.

Now Dr. Powell brings that expertise to pets in Greeley, Colorado. In addition to orthopedic care, Powell Vet Service offers a full range of pet care, including annual exams, vaccinations, state-of-the-art diagnostics, emergency medical and surgical, plus hospitalization, critical care and boarding.
