Regenexx® Stem Cell Procedures for Shoulder Arthritis, Rotator Cuff Tears & Other Shoulder Conditions.
The Regenexx® family of non-surgical stem-cell & blood platelet procedures are next generation regenerative injection treatments for those who are suffering from shoulder pain due to arthritis, rotator cuff and shoulder labrum tears, overuse injuries, and other degenerative conditions. Regenexx is also a viable alternative for those considering shoulder replacement surgery.
If you have encountered a rotator cuff tear, or experience pain related to shoulder arthritis, tendonitis, tendenosis, or bursitis, you may be a good candidate for a Regenexx Procedure. Shoulder surgery is particularly difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Post surgical recovery can be painful, requiring a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the shoulder. As an alternative to shoulder surgery, Regenexx Procedures may help alleviate shoulder pain and restore joint damage with a non-invasive injection procedure. Patients typically experience little or no down time from the procedure.

Your Alternative to Shoulder Surgery
The Regenexx Procedure for Rotator Cuff Tears is a patented same-day stem cell procedure. Through years of research and perfecting the use of stem cells and platelets to repair rotator cuff tears, Regenexx improves the rotator cuff’s regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has given way because of tissue weakness.
Video Overview – The Regenexx Procedure for Shoulder and Rotator Cuff
Using a precise, image-guided injection of your own stem cells and growth factors, we are able to get more of the body’s natural “repairmen” directly into the tear. By mobilizing your body’s own healing mechanisms and eliminating the trauma of surgery and atrophy caused by immobilization, Regenexx has produced good results in the treatment of partial rotator cuff tears and has even shown encouraging success with completely retracted tears.
How It Works
Stem Cell Treatments
Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They 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. Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.
Our Patented Stem Cell Procedures can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
The Regenexx Difference
As the most advanced orthopedic stem cell protocol in the world, Regenexx is 100% focused on orthopedic conditions & producing the best possible outcomes.
How You Can Avoid Invasive Shoulder Surgery
Written by regenerative medicine expert, Chris Centeno, M.D., Shoulder 2.0 delves deep into the workings and complexity of the shoulder. He shares the details of how the world of shoulder surgery will be upended by a new medical specialty called Interventional Orthopedics. This book focuses on each part of the shoulder, complex as it is interconnected to the whole, and on the shift of surgical salvage to the interventional orthopedic approach of shoulder repair.
Using the Regenexx SANS approach, Shoulder 2.0 walks you through a series of tests you can do on your own to better understand where your body is struggling to maintain proper alignment and stability, explaining the possible reasons and long term implications along the way. Shoulder 2.0 explores how Regenexx is further advancing the field of Interventional Orthopedics they helped to invent, where the uses of regenerative orthobiologics such as bone marrow concentrate source of stem cells and platelet rich plasma are used to help the body repair and strengthen damaged tissues, opposed to invasive surgeries that often remove important tissues of the shoulder.
