Shoulder Stem Cell Therapy and PRP / Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures for Shoulder & Rotator Cuff Injuries and Arthritis
Regenexx® Shoulder Stem Cell Therapy and PRP Procedures for Rotator Cuff Injuries offer the most advanced, non-surgical treatments for people suffering from shoulder arthritis, torn rotator cuff, shoulder bursitis, tendonitis and other common injuries. These minimally invasive procedures offer a viable treatment alternative for individuals considering elective shoulder surgery or shoulder replacement surgery.
The shoulder is an incredibly complex joint, making all types of shoulder surgery difficult, with unpredictable outcomes. Shoulder surgery recovery can require months of painful rehabilitation to help rebuild strength and range of motion in the shoulder joint.
Alternatively, the Regenexx procedures may help heal and alleviate shoulder problems with a same-day stem cell or platelet rich plasma injection procedure. Regenexx patients typically experience little to no down time from the procedure and avoid the wide range of problems that often follow surgery.
Commonly Treated Shoulder Conditions Using Stem Cell or Platelet Procedures
- Rotator cuff tears
- Arthritis of the shoulder joint
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Labral tears or degeneration
- Rotator cuff tendonitis
- AC Joint Separation
- Recurrent shoulder dislocations
Regenexx Patient Outcome Data for Shoulder and Rotator Cuff
This outcome information summarizes the 2014 registry data for shoulders treated with the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure using the patient’s own stem cells. It was comprised of a mix of patients with rotator cuff tears, arthritis, labral tears, and instability. Rotator cuff tear patients are doing the best in this group.
Shoulder Injuries and the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure
Stem Cells are in all of us and they are responsible for healing injured bone, ligaments, tendons and tissues. They are the key component behind the Regenexx Procedures. As we get older or injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these cells into the area in need. The Regenexx Procedures help solve that problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells and growth factors into the injured area, aiding your body’s ability to heal naturally. Regenexx patients experience little or no down-time from the procedure and typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods to restore joint strength and mobility following invasive surgeries.
Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures in the News
Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure OverviewThe Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure begins when the doctor thoroughly numbs the back of the hip (PSIS) and takes a small bone marrow sample through a needle, as well as a blood draw from a vein in the arm. The marrow is rich in Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which are responsible for healing damaged tissues. The stems cells are isolated from the marrow sample and platelets are isolated from the blood sample. After preparation, these two components will be reinjected directly into the damaged area of the joint using advanced imaging guidance. This ensures the cells are delivered to the exact location of need.
