Shoulder Stem Cell Injection? Ann’s Story

We’ve been performing a shoulder stem cell injection procedure for longer than anyone else in the U.S. Several years ago I met an avid CrossFit enthusiast named Ann who had a rotator cuff tear and was offered surgery.

Cut Your Shoulder Dislocation Surgery Recovery Time

One way to cut your shoulder dislocation surgery recovery time is to skip the surgery and opt for advanced interventional orthopedics instead. That’s what Penn State college lacrosse player Matt Florence did. Facing huge surgery with massive loss of playing time, he ditched the 1990s approach to his shoulder problems and opted for new technology from…
