Fred Caldwell, DVM, DACVS

Dr. Caldwell received his DVM from Auburn University and is currently an Assistant Professor in Equine Surgery in the Large Animal Teaching Hospital.  He also is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.


Research Interests

My current work involves the development of a novel desmitis/tendonitis model in the horse using a diode laser with a minimally invasive approach to the ligament or tendon.  We hope to successfully validate this model and utilize it to evaluate regenerative medicine techniques such as mesenchymal stem cells and autologous conditioned serum therapy in horses.
