What is Shoulder Arthritis?
Shoulder osteoarthritis is both common and debilitating. There are many factors both genetic and environmental that contribute to the disease process. In many cases, patients may have a predisposing shoulder injury and/or loose ligaments around the shoulder joint leading to abnormal alignment an accelerated breakdown. Loss of cartilage, inflammation, bone spurs and bruising of the bone are frequent findings in arthritis of the shoulder. Often overlooked, the shoulder joint environment that surrounds all of the shoulder joint tissues becomes “catabolic” meaning that it contains an increased level of destructive enzymes that destroy the shoulder joint over time. As the arthritic process continues it is not uncommon to have worn down or tear as arthritis progresses. In more severe cases, the bones can “bruise” around the joint and these bruises can become very painful and sometimes need to be treated as well.

A Proven Alternative: Bio-Restorative Non-Surgical Stem Cell Procedure
for Shoulder Arthritis (Including “Bone on Bone”)
Traditionally, the only treatment for those with advanced shoulder arthritis was shoulder amputation/replacement surgery as described above. Now, there is a viable alternative option for you. The treatment utilizes your body’s own stem cells and other healing mediators called Autologous Stem Cell Treatment.
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell Procedure for shoulder arthritis is an ultra-minimally invasive same-day non-surgical procedure designed to alleviate pain, improve function, aid in healing, restoration and joint preservation. In addition to being less invasive than surgery, the procedure conveys less risk of complications and much less downtime and pain following the treatment. Though it is not covered by insurance carriers, out of pocket costs for this procedure are often comparable to shoulder replacement surgery when considering copayments and lost productivity associated with surgery. Most importantly, this joint preserving procedure allows you to keep your own shoulder joint rather than cut it out and replace it with metal.
In other words, the Stem Cells from your own body harness your own body’s healing capability to naturally restore, reduce pain and get you back to doing the things you love.
Shoulder Replacement Surgery is an Invasive, Risky Painful, Unreliable Surgery
• It is not reliable for eliminating pain
• In almost 50% of people, the replacement wears out within less than 10 years
• Shoulder replacement is permanent if it is not effective there are then NO options, including stem cell treatment.
• Risks and complications are serious and significant and include heart attack, stroke, major infection, blood clot, cancer, pneumonia, major nerve injury and death.
With all these flaws, wonder why Shoulder Arthritis Surgery is so popular?

Why iOBX for your Shoulder Arthritis Treatment?
Stem Cell Shoulder Implantation
Countless independent 5-star reviews
Proprietary 3-step process using your body
Step 1: Unlike many facilities that use non-living/dead, potentially contaminated amniotic/umbilical/placental stem cell products, we collect stem cells from one’s own body and analyze preparations for quantity and viability to ensure that we are consistently delivering a high-quality restorative stem cell treatment of arthritic shoulder.
Harvesting of your body’s bone marrow and fat tissue using cutting-edge techniques allows for the collection of 200-300% more stem cells vs using lesser, “easier” techniques in harvesting those cells. To learn more about our harvesting process
Step 2: Within our Advanced Onsite Orthopedic Laboratory your tissue is safely and manually processed using proprietary, FDA compliant protocols to optimize final bone marrow and/or fat stem cell and bone marrow PRP formulations dependent on the areas we are treating. Our ability to flexibility process your tissue to achieve extremely high quantities of your own body’s stem cells for the condition we are treating you for is critically important, as is our ability to count and analyze the viability of these cells. This is extremely critical for Shoulder Arthritis because will only hold a small volume
Step 3: At iOBX we have the ability to DIRECTLY VISUALIZE the implantation of your own Stem Cells directly to abnormal or torn parts of the Arthritic Shoulder. Precision placement of your body’s own ultra-concentrated, purified Stem Cells is crucial to a successful outcome.
Along with a meticulous pre-treatment evaluation process and post-procedural rehabilitation course, this is the reason why more than 90% of our Shoulder Arthritis patients are satisfied with their results.
