A leader in veterinary regenerative medicine.
Dr. Orava received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree with honors from the Ontario Veterinary College. He then furthered his education with an intensive year-long internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island.
First introduced to stem cell treatment and regenerative medicine in the early 2000s, Dr. Orava was so impressed and inspired by the transformative therapy that he left his position as an equine veterinarian at a progressive sports horse practice to pursue full-time work with a California-based company that focused on regenerative medicine.
In 2015, Dr. Orava joined a start-up company based in Manhattan, Kansas, that focused on developing innovative regenerative medicine products for the veterinary field. That company has evolved into Enso Discoveries.
In addition to developing and validating medical products and devices for both the human and veterinary fields, Dr. Orava also chairs the Kansas Veterinary Regenerative Symposium, the first veterinary conference in the Midwest to focus on regenerative medicine.
