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 breakthrough, non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from shoulder pain due to common injuries to the shoulder and rotator cuff, as well as degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis.
Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair tears, or shoulder joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative, the Regenexx Same‑Day Stem Cell Protocol procedure may help alleviate shoulder pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure.
Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome Data
This outcome information summarizes the patient registry data for shoulders treated with the Regenexx same day stem cell procedure using the patient’s own stem cells. It was comprised of a mix of patients with rotator cuff tears, arthritis, labral tears, and instability.
Stem Cell Procedure Safety
Regenexx has published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.

Regenexx Procedures for Rotator Cuff Tears
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.
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 Regenexx Procedures Work
Stem Cell Treatments
Same Day Stem Cell Protocol
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
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures
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.
