Avoid Shoulder Surgery with Regenexx
Is shoulder replacement helpful? Many surgeons avoid recommending it because the results can be unreliable. However, shoulder arthritis impacts nearly 25% of adults and leads to chronic shoulder pain, stiffness, limited shoulder function, and decreased mobility. Common non-surgical treatment options include harmful steroid injections that can kill whatever cartilage is left. Shoulder replacement is an amputation of the shoulder joint with an insertion of a prosthesis. Such an invasive surgery leads to a long recovery time and the risk for serious complications. In addition, 40% of shoulder replacements in patients younger than 55 fail within 10 years.
Instead of joint amputation, instead, go with our percutaneous shoulder arthroplasty procedure. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your shoulder for better function and mobility. These procedures come with significantly less down time, minimal to no need of opioid pain medication, and little to no time off of work. Best of all these procedures spare normal body biomechanics helping you to remain active for your lifetime. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
