Regenerative Cell Institute’s innovative, stem cell and blood platelet procedures offer patients suffering from shoulder pain due to arthritis, rotator cuff and shoulder labrum tears, overuse injuries, and other degenerative conditions, an alternative to invasive surgical procedures. Our non-invasive stem cell treatments for shoulder pain help improve joint function, alleviate shoulder pain, and restore joint damage.
Patients who experience pain related to shoulder arthritis, tendonitis, tendenosis, or bursitis, or suffer from a torn rotator cuff, are now able to utilize regenerative therapy and stem cell injections to reduce pain and improve functionality. While traditional shoulder surgery is particularly difficult due to the complexity of the joint, and requires extensive recovery and rehabilitation, stem cell therapy is safe, effective, and requires little to no downtime.
As a leader in regenerative medicine, Dr. Santos has perfected the use of stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) for joint repair and pain management. Mobilizing the body’s own healing mechanisms, our stem cell therapy for shoulder pain eliminates the need for invasive surgery and the recovery, atrophy, and rehabilitation associated with traditional shoulder surgery.
Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell injections for shoulder pain are effective for the treatment of shoulder arthritis, tendonitis, tendinosis, bursitis, partially torn rotator cuffs, and completely retracted tears. Using a precise, image-guided injection of a patient’s own stem cells and growth factors, we can get more of the body’s natural “repairmen” directly into the damaged or inflamed area to alleviate pain and expedite the healing process.
Dr. Santos personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and determine the best course of treatment. The process begins by harvesting the patient’s stem cells and preparing them for injection, using a proprietary treatment method to yield the highest concentration of stem cells and stromal vascular fraction (SVF), which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors. This concentration is then injected into the shoulder joint, under local anesthetic, using fluoroscopic guidance to ensure precise delivery to the affected joint.
Stem cell therapy for shoulder pain is completed as an in office outpatient procedure, with stem cell harvesting, preparation, and injection completed in a single office visit. The procedure typically lasts 3 hours and patients experience little to no downtime.
