Shoulder

Is there a better option than shoulder surgery?

Regenexx provides non-surgical treatments that use your body's own healing agents to treat shoulder pain due to common injuries including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff and shoulder labrum tears, overuse injuries, and other degenerative conditions related to the shoulder.

Your Alternative to Shoulder Surgery

Have you been told that steroid injections or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your shoulder pain? Interventional orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.

If you experience pain in your shoulder during normal activity, you may be a good candidate for a Regenexx procedure. Shoulder surgery is particularly difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Post surgical recovery can be painful, requiring a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the shoulder. As an alternative to shoulder surgery, Regenexx procedures help alleviate shoulder pain and restore joint damage with a non-invasive injection procedure. Downtime is less than half that of surgery, with little to no need for pain management medications, lengthy rehab or time off of work. 

At Regenexx we invented a new approach to orthopedic care we call Interventional Orthopedics. This approach involves the use of image guidance (flouroscopy and ultrasound) to precisely place high-dose stem cells or platelets from your body directly where they are needed in a specific joint structure. These cells then work in the site of your injury to grow into new, healthy tissue, a process that will only occur if the cells have been placed exactly where they need to go in order to achieve positive outcomes for the patient. This precise approach to orthopedic care can’t be replicated by a surgeon or nurse in a chiropractor’s office. Interventional Orthopedics requires thousands of hours of training following a standardized protocol process to become a licensed Regenexx physician.

The innovative Regenexx procedures restore shoulder function and mobility and decrease pain without the need for surgery by regenerating damaged tissue. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing agents into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your shoulder joint for better function and mobility. 

This page contains an extensive library of educational resources on shoulder conditions and our patented shoulder procedures created by Regenexx and our founder, Chris Centeno, M.D.. We encourage you to research your options.

I want to confirm accurate placement in the labrum, and to do that, I need ultrasound.
