04 Jun Shoulder Rotator Cuff Tear treated with PRP
The patient is a 45-year-old female with complaints of right shoulder pain for three weeks after bench pressing and feeling a crunch. An MRI demonstrated a tear of the middle supraspinatus (rotator cuff) along with bursitis (fluid build up around the tendon). A n MRI confirmed the partial rotator cuff tear.
The patient received a platelet rich plasma injection graft approximately 5 weeks following her injury.
Following a series of 4 PRP injections, the patient is able to work out pain free now and avoided surgical repair of her rotator cuff.
