With the success we are seeing with the stem cell shoulder injections, less patients end up needing surgery to receive the same outcome. In addition, the rehab is shorter and patients do not need to deal with any incisions!
Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
The top stem cell therapy clinic serving Los Angeles, The Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute of Cellular Therapy, is now offering multiple stem cell injection treatments for nonoperative rotator cuff repair.
The treatments are administered by a Double Board Certified Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Raj, with incredible success rates for decreasing shoulder pain and increasing function. Those interested should call (424) 253-5577 for more information and scheduling.
Traditional treatments for rotator cuff tear pain have included steroid injections, which are excellent at pain relief but do not actually help with repair of the tear. If the tear is large enough, the patient’s function will not see any improvement and surgery may become necessary.
The difference with a regenerative medicine treatment such as with stem cell injections for rotator cuff tears is that pain relief typically occurs and there is potential for nonoperative healing. Multiple types of injections are offered, including bone marrow derived stem cell injections, platelet rich plasma therapy or amniotic derived stem cell therapy.
The Medical Director at the Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute of Cellular Therapy, Dr. Raj, also offers arthroscopic shoulder surgery. “With the success we are seeing with the stem cell shoulder injections, less patients end up needing surgery to receive the same outcome. In addition, the rehab is shorter and patients do not need to deal with any incisions!,” stated Dr. Raj.
Dr. Raj is a nationally respected orthopedic surgeon, having been named numerous times one of America’s Top Orthopedists. He serves as an ABC News Medical Correspondent, and treats everyone from celebrities to professional athletes, weekend warriors, grandparents, executives and college students.
All of the procedures are performed as an outpatient and entail very low risk. The Los Angeles PRP therapy involves a simple blood draw, while the bone marrow procedure entails a minimally invasive harvest procedure. The blood or marrow is immediately processed and injected into the shoulder for healing.
Individuals frequently travel to the Beverly Hills for treatment from outside the greater Los Angeles area. Travel arrangements can be made by the Institute. Call for more information and scheduling to (424) 253-5577.
