Join Dr. Chris Centeno WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14th at 12:30pm MT, to understand why and see how Interventional Orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative to surgery that uses your body’s own cells to promote improvement to damaged tissues and relieve pain from shoulder injuries and arthritis.

Instead of joint amputation, instead, go with our percutaneous shoulder arthroplasty procedure. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physiciansuse precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your shoulder for better function and mobility. These procedures come with significantly less down time, minimal to no need of opioid pain medication, and little to no time off of work. Best of all these procedures spare normal body biomechanics helping you to remain active for your lifetime. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
The labrum is the lip around the socket of the main shoulder joint. A shoulder labral tear can be caused by a direct injury to the shoulder or as the result of prolonged wear and tear. The common surgical intervention for labral tears often involves an invasive procedure where the biceps tendon is disconnected and reattached at another location. Basically, the surgeon is a bull in the china shop of your normal shoulder biomechanics. These surgeries, moreover, often don’t lead to better mobility and function while recovery is long, painful, and requires extensive physical therapy.
Another problem with surgery is that it often fails to address the subtle instability of the shoulder joint that caused the tear. Hence, while the labral tear may heal with the invasive surgery, the shoulder remains unstable, causing more labral injuries down the road. Our Percutaneous Labralplasty procedure also injects these lax shoulder capsular ligaments, tightening them down and restoring normal stability.
Finally, a recent large research study concluded that shoulder labral surgery was no more effective than a sham procedure. So instead of getting your shoulder torn apart and rebuilt, why not let our experts precisely inject your body’s own healing cells into the tear to promote natural healing? Find out more below.
Our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing agents into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your shoulder for better function and mobility. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for opioid pain medications or time off of work.

Rotator cuff tears are common as people get older. Don’t automatically assume a tear on an MRI is destiny with a surgeon. It’s important to do your homework and not just take the advice of a doctor without knowing what’s at stake for your rotator cuff long term with surgery.
Most patients considering surgery are looking for pain relief in their shoulder. What’s critical for you to know is a shoulder MRI could indicate a tear, but the tear is not necessarily the cause of your shoulder pain. So if research exists that rotator cuff surgery isn’t effective for many shoulder patients, and an MRI can provide a misleading diagnosis from a doctor, where should you turn for objective guidance?
You should schedule an exam with a Regenexx physician to conduct a diagnostic evaluation using our SANS approach to diagnose your rotator cuff injury and determine your candidacy for a Regenexx PERC rotator cuff repair. If you elect to move forward with treatment, you can expect the following.
During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing agentsinto the exact areas of damage, boosting your normal healing ability and allowing your shoulder to return itself to better function and mobility. Regenexx is the only network able to customize and concentrate cells to maximize your ability to recover. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
You have other options when it comes to treating your shoulder. Interventional orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage. It uses precise image-guided injections of your own body’s healing agents that can help repair tissue. Register for our webinar to learn more.
