Neck Arthritis and Spine Disease

Two common problems causing neck pain is degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy (a type of arthritis) of the cervical spine. Not all disk problems are amenable to regenerative therapy and patient selection is very important to optimize outcomes. Many forms of spine pain are actually due to arthritis of the facet joints (small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighboring vertebrae)... Read More

Knee Problems

Knee arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. There are several alternatives to knee surgery such as injection of cartilage substitutes or steroids. Steroid injection is not favored as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time... Read More

Hip Problems

Hip arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. Patients try to delay hip replacement surgery for as long as possible and often seek hip injections with steroids. Steroid injection is not favored as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time... Read More

Elbow & Hand Problems

Arthritis of joints of the upper extremity is a form of degenerative joint disease that disables millions of Americans. Certain types of elbow and wrist joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy... Read More

Shoulder Problems

Shoulder problems come from chronic pain from rotator cuff injuries and arthritis of joints of the shoulder disables millions of Americans. Certain types of shoulder joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy.

Shoulder Problems

Filed under Orthopedics

Shoulder problems caused by rotator cuff injuries and/or arthritic shoulder joints also disables millions of Americans. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess the likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.  We have found that shoulders may respond well to autologous SVF or stem cell deployments but can take many weeks or […]
