Regenerative Orthopedic Procedures for Shoulder and Rotator Cuff

Why Surgery May Not Be Your Only Treatment Option

Shoulder pain is a very common problem, whether it’s from an acute injury, such as a rotator cuff tear, or osteoarthritis due to aging and the degenerative process.

Surgery is often presented as the only option for patients by their doctors, even when some studies suggest that many of these surgeries may only be minimally effective. Some studies have indicated that physical therapy alone may produce comparable outcomes to common surgeries.

In many patients with shoulder pain, regenerative procedures may offer a non-surgical alternative for conditions ranging from rotator cuff tears, arthritis, overuse injuries, and other conditions that cause shoulder pain.

Regenerative procedures may help reduce the risks and lengthy recovery periods associated with invasive surgeries. And patients typically benefit from less downtime related to their procedure.
