Stem Cell Treatment for Rotator Cuff Tears

Stem Cell Treatment for Rotator Cuff Tears

A rotator cuff tear can occur for a variety of reasons but often happens after a person performs a repeated number of strenuous shoulder motions. Rotator cuff tears are common as athletic injuries or occur through a wear and tear of the tendon. Symptoms often include shoulder immobility, inflammation, and pain and many patients undergo surgery because of a rotator cuff tear. Other doctors treat rotator cuff tears with cortisone injections, which, as a steroid injection, can further damage shoulder tissue.

Professional athletes are turning to Stem Cell Therapy to treat injuries that once were thought to have required surgery. These athletes are avoiding surgery with stem cell injections and Dr. Benjamin Bieber applies Stem Cell Therapy to both athletes and non-athletes to heal the damaged cells of the rotator cuff.

Surgery is both risky and invasive. It has a several months period of painful rehabilitation and there is always the potential for long-term unforeseen complications.

The Ins and Outs of Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is a homeopathic injection treatment with a high success rate to repair a rotator cuff tear or at the very least, accelerate the recovery period for this injury. Patients find that after a stem cell treatment, there is a significant increase in mobility and a decrease in pain experienced. In some cases, surgery can be avoided altogether. Stem Cell Therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. To find out if your shoulder injury can be helped with Stem Cell Therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Benjamin Bieber, where he will examine you and recommend treatment.

In Stem Cell Therapy, Dr. Bieber only applies stem cells taken from the patient’s own body. They are either taken from fat tissue or bone marrow and then immediately injected into the shoulder using an ultrasound guided technique. This allows Dr. Bieber to see the tissue damage in the shoulder and place the stem cells exactly where they need to be to repair the rotator cuff tendon.

Stem Cells are neutral cells available almost everywhere in the body. As the body’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments degenerate in daily use, the brain signals stem cells in the area to transform into the type of tissue needed to heal this degeneration. The stem cells then transform and regenerate the muscle, tendon, or ligament tissues.

When stem cells are injected into the shoulder, they will physically transform into tendon tissue replacing and restoring damaged tissue. With a shoulder injury and its inherent trauma, there often aren't enough stem cells in the area to create the shoulder repair needed to fully heal the injury. This is one reason why shoulder surgery is first suggested but by adding healthy stem cells to the area, it is possible to give the shoulder the tools it needs to regenerate a rotator cuff tear helping the patient not only heal their shoulder pain but also avoid surgery entirely.

It is also a great treatment to try because it is non-surgical and low-risk. You can try Stem Cell Therapy before attempting surgery just to see how much it will help you and since it has a high success rate, there is a good chance it will significantly boost your shoulder’s ability to heal itself.
