Stem cell shoulder treatment India

Stem cell shoulder treatment India. This patient had shoulder arthritis and needed a shoulder replacement. As he is young, a total shoulder replacement would have been drastic. A bone preserving shoulder resurfacing was preferred. A weak link in shoulder replacements/ resurfacing is plastic wear from the socket. The plastic component used on the socket side is the usual cause of failure in a shoulder replacement. Hence it was decided to resurface the socket side with a stem cell technique. Stem cells were harvested from the bone marrow and processed into a glue. This stem cell glue was pasted on the glenoid and it set in ten minutes. The ball was resurfaced with a metal prosthesis.
