Can Stem Cells Really Help My Shoulder?February 25, 2019
Regenerative medicine is an exciting field of medicine that works by making use of your body’s own healing abilities to treat what might ordinarily have required a hospital visit and surgery. While surgery will always have a place in medicine, there are some conditions that may respond to minimally-invasive procedures such as regenerative medicine. Read on to find out if it’s right for you!
Shoulder conditions can vary from patient to patient. This can include fractures, joint issues, and wear and tear. Surgery options include replacement surgery, which can be time-consuming and risky depending on the patient. Recovery takes longer and you will be ‘put out of commission’ for days and even weeks, not to mention the rehabilitation it would involve.
With regenerative medicine, all of that is not needed. We take carefully screened cells and inject them where they are required. The cells regenerate into the desired tissue cells and heals your shoulder. This is an outpatient procedure that takes place at our clinic – simply walk in, get the cells administered into your body, and then walk out again! The recovery phase takes less time, allowing you to resume your normal life faster than ever.
