Millions of Americans are disabled by chronic pain from rotator cuff injuries and arthritis of joints of the shoulder. Arthritis of joints of the shoulder may result from degenerative joint disease. The shoulder is also susceptible to problems resulting from tendon or ligamentous injuries such as the rotator cuff. Not all of these joint issues may be amenable to cell therapy but are better suited for treatment aimed at stimulating growth factors.
Shoulder Problems and OC Regenerative Medicine
OC Regenerative Medicine uses a shoulder joint protocol with the goal of anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) providing relief. Treatment is targeted to the area of inflammation by using contrast enhanced MRI. The planning MRI allows precise targeted delivery of the SVF using image guided injection. This is outpatient takes approximately 3 hours including SVF harvesting and procurement. Ultrasound is used in targeting and deployment at OC Regenerative Medicine like no other center in the world for deploying SVF into backs meaning the entire procedure can be accomplished without the use of ionizing radiation.
