Regenerative medicine for shoulder arthritis

Posted by anilkumarv @anilkumarv, Mar 28 5:56pm

Hi Team,
Do you provide standard treatment for shoulder arthritis using regenerative therapy/techniques or is it still in research state ?
I would like to avoid surgery and trying to find alternatives. Let me know if Mayo can help in this regard and share the direct team contact.
Look forward to your response.
Thank you,
Anil.

Hi @anilkumarv and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. It is great that you are looking for alternatives to surgery. The purpose of Connect is for members to share their personal medical experience. Can you tell me what campus you are looking to go to? Mayo does have regenerative medicine physicians.

Just saw this…I'm 77. Have shoulder arthritis and in both hands and hip. Also osteoporosis. For osteoporosis, almost done with Tymlos daily injections (2 years). I'm at my wits end with finding anything that relieves arthritis pain. Rx meds don't help…OTC not helping. I am a home health care employee and I am really having a tough time.

Hi @georgette12, I'm 77 also and have degenerative arthritis in the hips, knees and probably the shoulders. I also haven't had much help with OTC stuff. I try to keep moving daily with some kind of activity and not overdo anything which seems to be when I really get the pain at night. Mayo Clinic has some do's and don'ts that you might find helpful if you aren't already aware of them.

I did get a guided steroid shot in my right hip which helped quite a bit but seems to have worn off now. The physical therapist showed me some hip abductor exercises which I've added to my daily routine and they seem to help a little also. There are a couple of discussions you might want to scan to learn what others have shared.
