The shoulder joint is one of the strongest joints in the body and is a critical joint for many every day activities such as washing and brushing your hair, driving your car and eating.
Shoulder injuries are common sport and work-related injuries due to repetitive movements. Most shoulder pain involves the muscles, ligaments, cartilage and tendons. Two of the most common injuries are:
Stem cell therapy, at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute, can eliminate the need for invasive shoulder surgery.
A SLAP tear or lesion is an injury to the glenoid labrum, where the bicep tendon is attached.
SLAP tears are common injuries in sports requiring an overhead throwing motion such a baseball and tennis.
Common symptoms include:

Traditional treatment options include steroid injections and then surgery. Surgery is the only treatment that can provide a long-term solution but recovery can be difficult and take a year or more, also there can be serious surgery related complications.
Stem cells are a type of undifferentiated cell that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. Stem cells can be guided into becoming a specific type of cell allowing physicians trained in the field of regenerative medicine to use stem cells to repair diseased or damage tissue.
The goal of stem cell therapy is to stimulate self-healing, improve function, reduce pain and improve the patient’s quality of life. Reasons to choose stem cell therapy instead of surgery include:
At the Stem Cells Transplant Institute, we use adult mesenchymal stem cells derived from the patients own adipose tissue and bone marrow.
The experts at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute use image guidance to place the stem cells and platelet rich plasma from your body into the specific area of damage. The new cells work directly at the site of injury to replace and repair the damaged tissue.
The Stem Cells Transplant Institute uses autologous mesenchymal stem cells or umbilical cord stem cells for the treatment of degenerative disc disease.
Rejection is not an issue for either umbilical cord stem cells or autologous adipose or bone marrow derived stem cells
Both types of stem cells have anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capabilities and can stimulate cell regeneration. You and your physician can decide on the best treatment option based on your age, symptoms, and treatment expectations.
Our clinic focuses on obtaining healthy stem cells exclusively from umbilical cord blood donors. We collect the placenta once the baby is born, with the parent’s informed consent. Additionally, we follow strict ethical guidelines and collect stem cells from reliable and reputable sources.
Our nursing staff administers the stem cells through an intravenous and intra-pulmonary route. For the most effective outcomes, intravenous administration is preferred.
Our clinic is located in Costa Rica, which is one of the most popular medical tourism destinations for stem cell therapy. At the Stem Cells Transplant Institute, we have a skilled team of doctors and medical professionals who collect and administer stem cells to treat autism and other conditions. Every patient receives the most cost-effective and top-notch care from our dedicated team.
