Peter had lived with severe shoulder pain for 10 years following a shoulder injury that damaged the cartilage in his ball joint. His shoulder pain prevented him from enjoying daily activities he had once loved. “Any type of physical activity I did, whether it be gardening, riding my bike, swimming — I always knew I’d have to pay the piper for pain,” Peter said.
In an attempt to avoid Shoulder Replacement Surgery, Peter decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Steve Meyers, a regenerative medicine specialist in Fort Worth. An MRI proved that Peter was a good candidate for Stem Cell Treatment. Using stem cells obtained from fat around Peter’s midsection, Dr. Meyers performed a Stem Cell Injection into the Shoulder joint. “Within about 24 hours, I had significantly less pain,” Peter explained. “After a month, I was 95% pain free. It has changed my life completely!”
