Lucy Wilson follows renowned veterinary surgeon Murray Shotter as he continues to treat horses and ponies around the world-wide equine community from his Berkshire based practice Shotter & Byers
It is estimated that 20% of all horses training for sporting or performance events are unable to compete due to injury, a frightening statistic for any polo pony owner, let alone high goal teams with barn lined with stables full of expensive legs to worry about in multiple countries.

Evolving Tissue Technology - Polo Times June 2018

  1. 1. Knowledge www.polotimes.co.uk80 Polo Times, June 2018 Knowledge Lipogems Positive prognosis for Lipogems polo ponies Lipogems follows renowned veterinary surgeon Murray Shotter as he continues to treat horses and ponies around the worldwide equine community from his Berkshire based practice, Shotter & Byers Equine Clinic. It is estimated that 20 percent of all horses training for sporting or performance events are unable to compete due to injury, a frightening statistic for any polo pony owner, let alone high goal teams with a barn lined with stables full of expensive legs to worry about across the world. Murray and his team continue to travel the globe to train other veterinary professionals and offer Lipogems Equine treatments to the equine community. Lipogems is increasing the positive prognosis of career ending injuries and has seen many more equine champions from all levels of competition returning to their chosen fields. Murray is one of the world’s leading Lipogems veterinary surgeons and he has treated horses in Argentina, Dubai and the UK. Plans are afoot for training and demonstration cases in New Zealand later this year. The success rates, cost- effectiveness, efficacy and feasibility are making Lipogems the treatment of choice for the equine community from top level sports horses to pleasure riders. Evolving Tissue Technology Common Conditions Treatable with Lipogems Equine • Flexor tendons superficial and deep • Suspensory ligament – proximal body and branch lesions • Proximal suspensory desmitis • Check ligament desmitis • Osteo Arthritis fetlock, stifle and interphalangeal joints • Impinging dorsal spinous processes • Non-healing wounds • Sacroiliac join What is Lipogems Equine Technology? There are no other comparative treatments that trigger the body’s own damage response mechanism in a single step non- enzymatic, no-centrifuge procedure that is completed on-site, under an hour either in surgery for small animals or under standing sedation for horses. The Lipogems system is a sterile single-use medical device intended for the closed-loop processing and transferring of autologous adipose tissue in a single surgical step. Lipogems is a non-expanded and micro- fragmented adipose tissue graft that is injected into damaged areas of the body to provide a cushion and structural support, while promoting a healing environment. The Lipogems process preserves the natural healing properties of adipose tissue by maintaining the fat’s ascular Stromal Niches. The micro-fragmentation of the tissue is key to the treatment process as it triggers the body’s own damage response mechanism. No lab culturing, no cell isolations – Lipogems is a complete tissue structure graft.

We are having very positive results with inferior check ligaments.”Murray Shotter at The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club Clinic
