Have you noticed that you never see the tribbles and the martian fat-cats in the same room at the same time?

Federation has ability to energize matter and reassemble living organism, keeping organism's functional structure intact. Can also make foodstuffs and materials from other matter.
You said Next Gen? I'll need a specific citation for that and I'll bet you it's one of those accidental non canon ones. Replicator technology at the Next Generation level was impressive but it was bulk rearrangement on the molecular level at best. Foodstuff conversation was molecular rearrangement of an existing bio replicator food source. Replication at the detailed molecular level, especially that of complex molecules that are required for a living cell was not a part of the Next Gen Canon.
There were interesting discussions on the possible nature of replicator surgery, but while also non canon, surgery in general isn't all that discussed either. Replication of actual living tissue was out as far as canon was concerned.
