MSC+ Cells Shoulder Injuries Rotator Cuff Labrum Tear Damage

Updated January 20,2017 – It is estimated that nearly 60% of all rotator cuff surgeries fail to improve the patients condition. Often times the patients were better of having no surgery at all. The regeneration centre of Thailand orthopaedic center offers a solution for those considering an effective alternative to shoulder surgery using MSC stem cell therapy. We now offer a powerful solution for men and women suffering needlessly from degenerative shoulder pain, knee injuries or sports injuries. The most common type of shoulder issues include torn or managed rotator cuffs, shoulder labrum injuries and the need for shoulder joint replacement due to severe degenerative effects of osteo and arthritis.

Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Repair

Our shoulder is one of the most complex and versatile socket and ball joint systems in the human body. The socket and joint connections are quite shallow however and require the assistance of four tendons that are collectively known as the Rotator Cuff keep the ball firmly inside the socket during physical rotations and any lifting of weights. Our shoulders’ are constantly being put through extensive wear and tear that can sometime lead to injuries and chronic pain.

Common Shoulder injuries include:

  • AC Shoulder Joint Separation
  • Rotator cuff tears and Injuries
  • Labral degeneration and labral tears
  • Frequent shoulder dislocations
  • Tendonitis of the Rotator Cuff
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Shoulder joint Arthritis

Unfortunately, these injuries are also some of the most difficult areas to repair surgically. It is estimated that nearly 60% of all Arthroscopic shoulder surgeries fail to heal properly, resulting in weak range of motion and lack of strength leading to a high risk of injury by “retears” in the tendon. What’s important to note here is that the main reason the shoulders did not heal naturally was due to the our bodies inability to recruit our bodies circulating stem cells to the shoulder to begin the natural cell restoration cycle.

Mesenchymal+ Cell therapy is appropriate for treating:

  • Labral tears, SLAP Tears, Glenoid Labrum Tears,Shoulder Joint Tears
  • Partial tears of the rotator cuff, Rotator cuff tendinitis ( Partial thickness tears)
  • Mild to moderate shoulder joint osteoarthritis
  • Joint Pain due to Lupus
  • Shoulder muscle strains and sprains

Stem Cells might not be appropriate for:

  • Complete separation of rotator cuffs, Complete tears
  • Severe Degenerative Osteoarthritis in Shoulder Joint

Treating Shoulder Injuries with Stem Cells

Our bodies consist of billions of specialized stem cells that help to form our muscles,brain, ligaments ,skin,bone, tendons and joints. Every day in our life, our cells go through a natural regenerative and death process. When old and injured cells die, our body replaces them with fresh new cells. This is the primary process and function of regenerative medicine. As we age this process becomes weaker and weaker. Sometimes, our injured cells are not able to heal themselves as effectively as before causing the degenerative process to continue. This results in our tissues and tendons to become less functional,weak and often times painful. To learn more about stem cells click here.

There are several types of cells in our bodies but the most effective types of cells that will allow for musculoskeletal healing in our tendons, bone, ligaments and cartilage are Hematopoietic Mesenchymal Stem cells. Mesenchymal Stem cells are produced in our bone marrow but can be harvested from peripheral blood,adipose tissue or even dental pulp (In children).

Alternative to Shoulder Surgery

The regen center orthopaedic stem cell treatments for hip injuries and shoulder damage utilize high concentrations of enriched Hematopoietic Mesenchymal Stem cells allowing for a unique protocol that uses multiple non-painful injections of adult stem cells that allow for safe and natural healing of your shoulder injury without any downsides associated with surgical interventions.(23371475)

Rotator Cuff Surgery Vs Stem Cells

Surgical Option 

  • 6-8 weeks of wearing a shoulder brace
  • Restricted movements for up to 4 months
  • High Failure Rate ( Up to 60% of all Surgeries fail)
  • Risk of infections and blood clots after surgery
  • Long & Painful Rehab
  • 5 months – 14 months for complete recovery

Stem Cell Shoulder Repair @ Regen Center ( NON-SURGICAL )

  • Non-Surgical
  • Enriched Mesenchymal injections (23972267)
  • Minimal activity restrictions
  • Very little downtime
  • Years of Successful outcomes using Hematopoietic Stem Cells
  • No Need for Physical braces

TREATMENT PRECAUTION
Please Note That Not All Patients will qualify for the Treatment of Degenerative Musculoskeletal conditions and shoulder injuries. Severely torn rotator cuffs, patients with severe labrum damage or travel restrictions will not qualify for our 10-17 night treatment protocol.
Cells for Shoulder Joint Repair –  Overview

Total Number of Cell Infusions: 2-6 Enriched Infusions of Mesenchymal “MSCs” Cells depending on the scope and severity on the injury.

Type of Cells Used and Injection Locations: Cells used in our treatment are lab concentrated Mesenchymal Stem cells that will be derived from the patient (Autologous) via the peripheral blood or adipose tissue. For older patients or patients with severe/several underlying health conditions our protocol is to use HLA matched Allogeneic cells that are derived from Cord blood, Amniotic membrane or human Placenta derived depending on the patients medical needs. All cell injections are performed under local or topical anaesthesia and delivered to the areas on injury though radio guided intramuscular injections and/or Intravenous Drips.(22405331)

Physical Rehabilitation After Treatment: The regen centre of Thailand recommends starting physical/shoulder rehab after all treatments. Depending on the patients schedule, physical rehab can be done in Bangkok or upon return to your home. We offer complete physical rehab packages that are optional depending on your travel/time constraints.Our rehabilitation program is available upon request for 2-3 hours per day and up to 6 days per week. Thai Medical visas and/or hotel packages for the patient and family can also be provided upon request.

Total Treatment Length : estimated treatment time in Bangkok Thailand for stem cell therapy for shoulder injuries is 10-17 nights in Total.

Cost of Treating Shoulder Arthritis with Stem Cells

Due to the varying degrees of tendon/Labrum injuries our orthopaedic medical team will need to conduct a virtual consultation with the patient. This medical review is complimentary and can be perfumed online using the patient’s medical records and/or radiological results such as X-rays, MRI’s,ultrasounds or CT Scans. Once our review is complete we can know for certain if the patient is a candidate for treatment and provide a detailed plan that will include the specifics of the treatment including exact total number nights required in Thailand along with total and fixed medical expenses costs (excluding accommodations or flights).

  1. Hi
    I have a partial tear in my rotator cuff. Could you please give me an idea on the the price of stem cell treatment?

  2. Hello,
    I had made an MRI in september 2015 of the right shoulder.
    I am diagnosed for:
    -Tedinosis and tear in the Supraspinasus
    – Impignement
    – Tear in the Labrum (12-6 oclock)

    Surgery is not needed, but I am limited of using my shoulder and the impegement is healing very slow

    I am verry interested in the stemmcel technology
    Can you tell me the procedure and the costs.

    Kind regards
