New surgical video on Rotator Cuff Repair Augmented with Stem Cells and Growth Factors.

 

Rotator Cuff Repair can be improved by using the patient’s own stem cells to stimulate healing. This is a video of real surgery in which I harvest the patients stem cells from his bone marrow in the same shoulder were I am repairing his rotator cuff.  We have the technology to prepare the stem cells and growth factors in the OR while the repair is being completed, then injecting them into the repair site to foster more rapid and thorough healing.  This technique was recently featured on Houston’s ABC Channel 13 News. Video
