If you are researching alternative treatments to painful shoulder replacement surgery, the one new thing that will keep coming to the top of your search is stem cell treatments!
The cartilage in your joints is vulnerable to damage because it has poor blood supply, thus a poor potential for regeneration. Both bone marrow and adipose-derived ‘mesenchymal stem cells’ with inherent chondrogenic (cartilage producing) differentiation potential, appear to be ideally suited for therapeutic use in cartilage regeneration. At Advanced Rejuvenation we are pioneering the combination of both stem cells from bone marrow and adipose tissue together in the same treatment called “MarrApose”.
Avoiding surgery should be a goal for anyone with a rotator cuff injury. There are multiple studies that show that many surgical rotator cuff repair fail, especially with larger tears. Studies also suggest that PRP can be a viable option to a painful and risky surgery. Recovery from surgical repair can be long and painful, lasting for months where the recovery from our regenerative treatments takes just days. Many times when we perform our detailed ultrasound scan on the entire shoulder, we find many areas needing repair. We have the advantage of treating all of them in the same visit, as we just inject the spots that are damaged under ultrasound guidance. Even complete tears can now be addressed as long as they are not separated too far (more than 3 cm) with the use of what’s called a fat graft.
In the event of failed rotator cuff surgery, PRP, AmnioFix or Stem Cell treatments can address and correct the residual pain and stiffness.
PRP and Stem Cell Therapy is a regenerative injection technique that stimulates the healing of soft tissue. Your cartilage is vulnerable to damage because it has poor blood supply, thus a poor potential for regeneration.

The surgical arthroscopic treatment of the labrum is such that it involves removal of tissue. The glenoid labrum is one of the most important stabilizing structures of the shoulder. When removed, the shoulder becomes less stable and more susceptible to further injury. Surgical removal will predispose that shoulder to early arthritis!
Acromioclavicular (AC) joint arthritis can lead to pain and difficulty during everyday use of the shoulder. The acromion is the part of the scapula that makes up the roof of the shoulder; it connects with the clavicle at the AC joint. In this condition, there is a weak attachment at this joint, causing grinding and pain. In addition, the AC joint is particularly prone to the development of osteoarthritis during middle age.
Prolotherapy, PRP and Stem Cell Injections offer the most curative results in treating chronic pain at the AC joint. It effectively eliminates pain because it attacks the source: the fibro-osseous junction, an area rich in sensory nerves. The tissue strengthening and pain relief stimulated by these treatments are permanent!
Over the years we have repaired many rotator cuff tears with our treatments that would normally require surgery to do so. Using ultrasound guidance to inject the healing solution to the exact location is critical, and why many others might fail in reproducing the results seen at Advanced Rejuvenation. We are one of the first in the world to combine AmnioFix with PRP and also use Stem Cells from both fat and bone marrow, in many cases. The specific treatment for your shoulder will be discussed following a detailed ultrasound scan. Once we have an idea as to all of the damaged areas in the shoulder, we will be better able to guide you as to the right treatment options for your case.
