Can Rotator Cuff Injuries be Treated with Stem Cells?
Like any other injury, you never really know just how important your rotator cuff is until it’s injured. Your rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that help to stabilize the shoulder. When your shoulder moves, your rotator cuff stays in place to help keep your shoulder safely in place. If this area is injured, you can expect lots of pain and a significant decrease in your shoulders range of motion. Often times, medical professionals will refer rotator cuff injuries to surgery. However, we want everyone to ask themselves, is this really the best method for treating rotator cuff tears? At The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we are excited to provide an alternative, more holistic treatment to your rotator cuff injury. The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine is proud to offer stem cell treatments as an alternative to rotator cuff surgery.
Why Not Surgery?
Medicine frequently relies on statistical analysis to prove results. Speaking statistically, research studies have concluded that 60% of large rotator cuff surgeries experience some type of failure to repair and the rotator cuff ends up re-tearing. The odds are even worse for those over 60 in which the shoulder never heals for one in three that have the surgery. Even more depressing, a multitude of patients undergoing the surgery still have pain after it has healed.
Why Stem Cells?
At the Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we have been utilizing stem cell treatments as a surgical alternative for rotator cuff injuries. We have witnessed great results that have allowed our clients to recover much faster and experience much less pain. Stem cell treatments for rotator cuff injuries can regrow your damaged tissue and restore your rotator cuff into strong, healthy cells once again. Better outcomes, minimal pain, more affordable solutions and even a minimal recovery time after the procedure, are all important aspects as to why stem cell treatment is a much better, less invasive alternative to rotator cuff surgery.
All of our procedures at The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine are done under fluoroscopy or ultrasound guidance. This is so we can always ensure the precise location for stem cell delivery. Most procedures can be done under local anesthesia however, we offer IV sedation as well for those that may want it. This procedure is painless and leads to outcomes that can ultimately increase your quality of life.
