Regenexx® Stem Cell Procedures Treat Rotator Cuff Tears, Shoulder Arthritis & Other Shoulder Conditions
Patients who suffer from shoulder pain as a result of rotator cuff or shoulder injuries, or osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions have an alternative to painful surgery. The Regenexx family of cutting-edge stem cell and blood platelet procedures can treat many shoulder problems.
Often, these patients undergo shoulder joint replacement or arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair tears, but these surgeries bring with them months of rehabilitation and possible side effects. The good news is that our Same‑Day Stem Cell Protocol Procedure could relieve your shoulder pain and mend its root causes with a minimally invasive, outpatient injection.
Outcome Data for Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patients
The data contained in this infographic reflects the results of patients whose shoulder arthritis, labral tears, rotator cuff tears, and instability were treated with the Regenexx Same-Day Stem Cell Procedure, which uses the patient’s own stem cells.
Stem Cell Procedure Safety
Regenexx has released more orthopedic-related stem cell safety data in peer-reviewed medical publications than any single group throughout the world. The report shown here reviewed 1,591 patients who received 1,949 Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures. The data indicates that our procedure is on par regarding safety with other typical injection procedures. This mirrors what our patients experience in our clinic on a daily basis.

How Regenexx Procedures Help Repair Rotator Cuff Tears
With the Regenexx patented same-day stem cell procedure, rotator cuff tears can be treated and repaired without risky surgeries or causing more damage to a weakened area. In fact, our procedure increases the potential of a patient’s rotator cuff to repair itself by using stem cells and platelets taken from the patient and reinjecting them in the affected area.
We do an image-guided injection to ensure that your stem cells and growth factors are directed into the tear so that we can get the best results possible. By taking advantage of your body’s natural healing agents and removing the challenges of surgery and rehabilitation, Regenexx has achieved quality outcomes for patients with partial rotator cuff tears. Our procedure has also shown promising results for patients who had completely retracted tears.
Why Regenexx Procedures Are Effective
Stem Cell Treatments
Same-Day Stem Cell Procedures
What are stem cells? They’re cells from your body that not only renew themselves but also can convert themselves into other cells. This process is known as differentiation. Stem cells can be found in a variety of tissues, and our bodies use them to repair injured areas. When we get older or suffer traumas or major injuries, stem cells may not be as readily available to help us heal the damaged tissues. Our patented Same-Day Stem Cell Procedures resolve this issue by taking stem cells from an area of the body where they are abundant, concentrating these cells and reinjecting them into the injured area so that they can stimulate healing.
These procedures work well on a variety of conditions, including arthritis, injuries, and other issues that are too severe to respond to our platelet rich plasma or platelet lysate treatments.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma and Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures
Regenexx offers two platelet injection procedures – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Treatments – that enhance your body’s natural healing process by adding healing growth components from your own blood to your injured areas. PRP, in particular, is effective in repairing muscle, ligament, tendon, and joint injuries. The platelet injection treatments work with your stem cells, encouraging and supporting their efforts to heal damaged tissues, especially those related to spine conditions, arthritis and soft tissue injuries. Our advanced platelet procedures are superior to the ones provided at most regenerative medicine clinics because our machines yield purer and more concentrated platelet samples.
