Regenerative Orthopedic case of the week:

Rotator cuff partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon treated with PRP.

58 year old with 9 month history of persistent shoulder pain. No discrete shoulder injury. Progressive pain with reaching to the side, reaching overhead and reaching back. Pain at night. Minimal improvement with physical therapy.

Ultrasound imaging shows partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon and loss of normal volume contour of the rotator cuff/deltoid interface.

After discussing options, patient decided to proceed with PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment.

Come see what regenerative orthopedics can do for you!
