What is Shoulder Arthritis?
Shoulder Arthritis 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 Shoulder Arthritis. 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 Shoulder 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
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.
