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.

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

Shoulder (Arthritis)

Shoulder joint replacement surgery is an invasive procedure. It is more accurately described as a shoulder amputation because the ends of your shoulder bones are cut, removed and an artificial metal and plastic prosthesis replaces your original bone. Though often considered the gold-standard for shoulder arthritis the surgery has major flaws and deficiencies.
• 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.

I had a complete tear of my ACL and was "too" old for surgery and not athletic enough. Dr. Tucker gave me the full treatment in March of 2017, I was without crutches or brace in 6 weeks and ran a 5K in 2018. Very professional and willing to answer all and every question. Had an MRI recently which showed healing and complete restoration to my complete ACL tear!

Not wanting to have replacement surgery on the knee that had troubled me for years, iOrthoBIOLOGIX was recommended by my PCP Dr. Kanelos. Upon arrival I knew I was in the right place. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive. Dr. Tucker dispelled any worries I had about stem cell procedures, listening carefully to my input and following up with relevant questions. He was willing to spend the time necessary to help me understand the condition of my knee, the procedures that would be applied, what to expect following treatment and what I should do in the weeks to follow. I was particularly impressed with the level of follow up care provided and thankful to have transitioned from having near constant pain in my left knee, to being able to walk and exercise daily. As a 73-year old man who sees more doctors more often than I care to, iOrthoBIOLOGIX is among the BEST I've ever seen!

I had been through Physical Therapy with 2 different practitioners prior to my Stem Cell treatment. I also saw an Orthopedic Surgeon that gave me a cortisone shot which lasted a few weeks. His recommendation was to continue cortisone shots, frequently, until I eventually needed a knee replacement surgery. My knee was swollen and I was in a lot of pain. Stairs were difficult and standing for any period of time was hard too. Exercising was impossible. The increase in my pain levels made even riding a bike unbearable. I had exercised all my life and I was in good shape, but my knee was stopping me from being able to do the most basic exercises and again standing was something I could do for only short periods of time. I found iOrthoBIOLOGIX through a local physical therapist that had seen success with his patients. I live in Wisconsin but chose to make the trip to Charlotte. I found Dr. Tucker and his staff to be very patient with me and answered all of my questions prior to the treatment as my case was more complex do to me having Rheumatoid Arthritis. I chose to do the Stem Elite Restore procedure followed by a STEMish booster for both my knee and thumb. Throughout the treatment, I could not have been in better hands. They kept me informed of what was going on and how to proceed afterwards. During the treatment, everyone was encouraging and informative as to what was going on. Honestly, Dr. Tucker is the best experience I have ever had with a medical doctor. He truly cares about his patients and spent a lot of time with me making sure the right treatment was selected for my case. I am now able to exercise for 30-40 minutes. I can walk for long periods of time, standing does not bother me and I do not have pain in my knee. I'm also pleased with the results of my thumb treatment as well. I feel like I have been given my life back. iOBX stays on the cutting edge of Stem Cell treatment technology and cares about their patients – I could not ask for better. Paula
