Orthobiologics for the equine athlete

Orthobiologics are rapidly changing the way care is being delivered to human, canine, and equine athletes.

Equine veterinarians are often too busy to sort through the current and sometimes conflicting research and clinical applications on these topics let alone engage in discussions with colleagues and hear the perspectives of human physicians and researchers. For both human and veterinary professionals, the development of various orthobiologic devices and products from different sources and both of allogeneic and autologous origin is interesting and challenging. What equine veterinarians need is (scientific) backup to make informed decisions and support to make sure they are adhering to local regulatory issues.

The Equine Regenerative Medicine and Orthobiologics Online Summit is dedicated to helping attendees make informed decisions based upon the most current research and clinical experiences in these fields using a standardized evaluation process. The wide scope of topics offered is done by partnering with international groups and associations focused on these subjects.

Every year in the month of October we have 2,5-hour sessions on Monday and Tuesday. The live sessions are open for questions in a moderated discussion afterwards. We have all the presentations and discussions available after the live presentations for on demand (re)view for one year. A video library of all sessions since 2020 is available for members of the Equine High-Performance Sports Group.


This year we have over 40 international thought leaders from human, canine, and equine medicine available to help you to become better informed and make the best possible decision for the treatment of the athletes under your care.
