Stem-cell Therapy can be an ideal alternative for people suffering from pain caused by damage to the rotator cuff, damage to the articular cartilage caused by a degenerative disease, injury, inflammation or overload (strain) of the shoulder. It can be a more favourable option than shoulder arthroscopy or shoulder replacement surgery because such surgical procedures are often complicated and may not bring the desired effect for numerous reasons, e.g. because of the complicated biomechanics of the shoulder joint. What is more, after the operation comes a lengthy rehabilitation process in order to restore full mobility. However, some patients need to resort to surgery – we offer minimally invasive surgical techniques that are accompanied by stem-cell therapy which speeds up and improves regeneration and restores functionality.
Stem-cell therapy can be used to treat:
- Partial damage to the rotator cuff
- Glenoid labrum tears
- Moderate degenerative disease of the shoulder joint
- Damage to the arterial cartilage of the shoulder
- Strained muscles of the shoulder joint
Stem-cell therapy is not normally used as the sole method of treatment in the case of:
- Drastic degenerative changes to the joins
- Complete rupture of the rotator cuff
Due to the fact that not every patient who suffers from shoulder pain or injury is a candidate for stem-cell therapy, Dr Jan Paradowski will assess the possibility of using this treatment or will discuss other possible treatment methods – surgical and non-surgical (e.g. platelet-rich plasma GPS or Orthokine, a biological, anti-inflammatory regenerative therapy).
Please feel free to contact us and book an appointment so that we can conduct an evaluation and assessment to find out if you qualify for stem-cell therapy.
