REGENERATIVE ORTHOPEDIC SHOULDER TREATMENTS
Use your own stem cells to accelerate the healing process
Regenerative Medicine Procedures for Rotator Cuff Tears, Shoulder Arthritis, and Other Shoulder Conditions.
Regenerative Medicine procedures are non-surgical injection-based treatments for people suffering from shoulder pain due to common injuries to the shoulder and rotator cuff, Shoulder Labrum, as well as degenerative conditions – ex. shoulder osteoarthritis. These procedures utilize concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.
Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair tears, or shoulder joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and fully prepared to take on the risks. Regenerative Medicine procedures are designed to help reduce pain and improve function with precise highly specific image-guided medical procedures to promote the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
Commonly Treated Shoulder Conditions
Regenerative Medicine Procedures for Rotator Cuff Tears Using the healing agents from your own body to treat rotator cuff tears, shoulder arthritis, and other common shoulder conditions, Regenerative Medicine provides an alternative to invasive surgeries such as rotator cuff tear surgery, shoulder labrum surgery, acromioplasty, and shoulder replacement. Highly specific, precise, image-guided injections of your own cells and growth factors directly into the injured area promotes your own body’s natural ability to repair. By both mobilizing your body’s own healing mechanisms and eliminating the trauma of surgery and atrophy caused by immobilization, Regenerative Medicine procedures have produced good outcomes in the treatment of rotator cuff tears, and other common shoulder injuries and degenerative conditions like shoulder arthritis.

Stem Cell Therapy Process
Our expert physicians will meet with you by phone or in-person to review your medical history and will determine if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy. If we agree stem cell therapy can help, we’ll schedule your first appointment in our office.
In most cases our outpatient treatment takes 2-4 hours and is nearly pain free. You do not have to “go under.” On the day of your procedure, our physicians will collect your stem cells. Fat is obtained from the low back or abdomen, bone marrow is obtained from the back part of the hip. After stem cell collection, you will relax in a private room. Once processed, your stem cells will be injected into the area of need using a highly sophisticated ultrasound instrument with enhanced needle visualization for precise delivery of your stem cells. In some cases, we also administer an IV of your stem cells during treatment to further enhance your body’s natural healing process.
There is virtually no recovery time from your stem cell therapy procedure. Most people are back to work the following day.
Physical Therapy – NRO has partnered with several physical therapist providers specifically trained in therapy following regenerative treatments. The combination of regenerative medicine and physical therapy to correct biomechanical imbalances offers patients an empowering way to take control of their lives.
Our medical staff will remain in touch with you during your recovery process to answer questions.
Patients who are considered to be candidates will be invited for a consultation with one of our panel physicians. Treatment cost varies depending on the disease state being treated and which type of stem cell deployment is required.
HOW REGENERATIVE MEDICINE WORKS
Effective Bone Marrow Concentrate Treatment
BONE MARROW CONCENTRATE
Regenerative Medicine Bone Marrow Concentrate contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. Our treatments help overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body’s own ability to heal naturally and can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.
Effective PRP Procedures
SUPER CONCENTRATED PLATELET RICH PLASMA & PLATELET LYSATE PROCEDURES
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Regenerative Medicine PRP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
