4 Year Follow-up on Stem cell Treatment for Shoulder Rotator Cuff
POSTED ON 2/21/2012 IN Shoulder BY Christopher Centeno
We always get asked by patients how long we think the effects of a stem cell treatment for shoulder rotator cuff can last. One of the advantages of the Regenexx stem cell procedures is the long-term follow-up on our patients when these specific stem cell treatment protocols are used. AB is now 82 year old woman who we treated 4 years ago for severe rotator cuff tendinitis with partial tears in the rotator cuff. At three months out her MRI showed significant improvement and at two years out her shoulder was significantly improved as well. So did it last? I just saw her in clinic for another unrelated issue and had the opportunity to examine her shoulder. She still has no shoulder complaints and the physical examination on that shoulder is indistinguishable from the good side. The upshot? This is an elderly woman treated with the Regenexx-C stem cell injection procedure instead of more invasive and risky shoulder surgery. While not every Regenexx-C patient experiences the same results, she's had a durable effect and is still very happy about the result at four years out.
