Post-Surgical Healing

  • Post-Surgical Healing Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware

    Case Presented by the Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware

    Bob is a 3-year-old long-haired Chihuahua. In October 2013, he had bilateral Medial Patella Luxation (MPL) Surgery–a surgery on both knee caps simultaneously to prevent them from “popping” out of place. Recovery may have seemed daunting for a little dog with two bum knees, but Bob was up and moving one day after his surgery with Dr. Scott Roberts of the Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware (VSCD).

    I treat post-op recovery patients daily and can honestly say your product made a significant difference in the amount of comfort and speed in which Bob recovered.” -David Mazzoni, VCSD   Learn More


  • Post-Surgical Healing Case Dr. Sean Hagberg

    Case Presented by Pet Owner Dr. Sean Hagberg of Rio Grande Neurosciences

    "Ginger, a German Shepherd, tore her ACL while playing and needed surgery. Her orthopedic surgeon loved the idea of using an Assisi Loop® post-surgically. In fact, he had the unit taped to her right after surgery. Ginger was acting like her old self within 3 days and you wouldn't have known she'd had surgery, except for the "cone of shame." Our vet stated that she healed in half the usual time, and she did this without any pain medication.  We were really lucky to have access to the Assisi Loops."

     

Using the Assisi products immediately after a surgical procedure and in the days after surgery enhances healing by accelerating the reduction of swelling and pain. tPEMF® can manage post-surgical inflammation as well as wound healing, enabling rehabilitation to begin more quickly and safely. The device is simple to use. It may be placed directly over any wound dressing and non-metallic splints. A single manual treatment lasts only 15 minutes. Similar technology has been cleared by the FDA specifically for the treatment of post-operative pain and edema in humans.

Assisi products can be supplied to treat post-procedural sites with a pre-programmed treatment regimen, which improves compliance and thereby enhances outcomes.

Published studies have shown that tPEMF:

  • Accelerates surgical wound healing by up to 58%1
  • Accelerates tendon repair by up to 69%2
  • Accelerates the growth of new blood vessels that support tissue healing 3,4
