Just because a civilisation is technologically advanced it doesn't mean for EVERY type of technology.
Could a Ferrari engineer perform a meckel's diverticulum?
Could a surgeon fix a broken Ferrari gearbox or remap its engine?
Just because another civilisation may have been successful in interstellar travel it doesn't necessarily mean they've even touched on the biological testing side of things. Maybe they aren't as crude or barbaric as humans and have not tested on each-other yet because they grouped together instead and collectively focused their efforts on interstellar travel - because killing each-other is not one of their top priorities.
I think an Alien race would operate much more like an ants nest than how we... bimble about abusing one another.
