Texas Orthobiologics is bringing America's #1 Regenerative Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery Clinic to Frisco, Texas, McKinney, Texas, Plano, Texas, Allen, Texas, and surrounding north Dallas communities. Our motto is that you deserve to live your best life without pain....and we have the latest nonsurgical ways to get you there. Sometimes, like with a complete rotator cuff tendon tear in the shoulder, surgery in unavoidable....but we have you covered there too! We can use PRP (platelet rich plasma) or Bone Marrow Concentrate (stem cells) to get you a better surgical result. We have been setting the standard in this growing specialty for 15 years now.
There is growing evidence that Platelet rich plasma (PRP) can help reduce retear rates in rotator cuff surgery!
This just published paper reviewed 10 separate level 1 RCTs.
The authors also found that platelet rich fibrin (PRF) did NOT reduce retear rates....so we should be using PRP at this point based on this review.
To get the best results....I also often add a Biobrace implant which is an absorbable collagen + PLLA implant that is suturable and adds strength immediately to the repair...and like magic goes away over a couple years!
