Regenexx Procedures for Shoulder Injury Repair
Regenexx procedures are non-surgical alternatives that use precise image-guided injections of your body’s own natural healing agents to treat shoulder injuries. These procedures utilize either platelet-rich plasma or your own bone marrow concentrate (contains stem cells) to help you avoid shoulder surgery.
Once you’ve been evaluated, your physician will customize a treatment plan based on your specific needs.
