About us:

Based in the small village of St Boswells, in the picturesque Scottish Borders, Greenside is a first option and referral practice.

Our location allows easy access to both Edinburgh and Newcastle by road or rail.

We are a friendly and supportive team with a good mix of younger graduates and more experienced members of staff. We value teamwork and organise frequent, well attended, social events to build on our team spirit.

The offered role would be based in Greenside's purpose-built regenerative medicine and rehabilitation referral facility. Operational for over a decade now, Greenside was the first regenerative medicine referral centre to be opened in the UK and attracts clients from across the length of the UK and Europe.

We provide our clients with a complete service including, full musculoskeletal diagnostic work ups, advanced treatment options with stem cell therapy/platelet rich plasma therapy, and rehabilitation with physiotherapy and hydrotherapy.

Our diagnostics tools include force plate analysis, stance analysis, digital thermal imaging, musculoskeletal ultrasound and elastography, digital radiographs and needle arthroscopy. We strive to provide every patient with a complete diagnosis to deliver the optimum treatment plan.

Greenside is leading the way in veterinary regenerative medicine and actively contributes to research in the field. Current research focuses on combination therapies for elbow dysplasia, spinal disorders, and rehabilitation following treatment with stem cell therapy. Andrew Armitage heads up the Regenerative medicine team at Greenside and has recently published a large scale, comprehensive study which adds to the evidence required to support the use of MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells) in canine musculoskeletal conditions: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fvets.2022.1014687/full
