Hello Justin,Yes, the information you provided is what I am looking for.  I want to learn more about the stem cell treatments that the Mayo Clinic performs for shoulder injuries.I have seen an orthopedic surgeon in Arizona for a rotator cuff tear.  I winter in Arizona and spend my summers in Minnesota.  The surgeon told me I have a complete rotator cuff tear and indicated that a shoulder replacement would likely result in the best outcome.  I heard of a stem cell treatment for certain shoulder problems but I do not know if the treatment is used for rotator cuff tears.  That is what I want to learn more about.  I have Xrays and a MRI that was done recently.  I did look at part of the webinar, but I am specifically interested in treatments for the problem I have, a complete rotator cuff tear.  Any additional information you can provide would be most appreciated.Thank you,Pete Rauen

Stem Cell Therapy for Rotator Cuff Tears

I understand that the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Department offers stem cell therapy for patients with rotator cuff tears. Where can I learn more about this procedure and decide if I am possibly a candidate for such a procedure? I am 74 years old and have been diagnosed with a total rotator cuff tear. Thank you.

I am glad to hear that information helped you. I am not a medical professional and cannot offer medical advice, however, I would recommend using the information in my previous post to call and ask your questions.
