Regenerative Cell Therapy
For Rotator Cuff Tears


Eligibility Requirements


Females and males
ages 30 – 75


Experiencing shoulder
pain, or lack of shoulder strength


MRI diagnosis of a
partial rotator cuff tear

(Patients who do not have
an MRI may still apply)

About the Trial

  • The clinical study uses regenerative cells in patients who have partial thickness rotator cuff tears. These are tears in the tendon that contribute to shoulder pain, dysfunction, and occupational disability.
  • In this study, regenerative cells from your fat tissue will be isolated, concentrated, and injected into your tendon tear. You will receive either a steroid injection or an in injection of your own regenerated cells. *
  • More information can be found at

* The use of regenerative cells is investigational. We are studying the safety and effectiveness of this treatment compared to steroid injections.


About Rotator Cuff Tears

  • Rotator cuff tears are the leading cause of shoulder
    pain in the US.
  • These tears are very common, affecting 4 million
    Americans every year. As many as half of Americans over the age of 60 have a partial rotator cuff tear.
  • Treating these tears can be difficult. Unfortunately, many partial tears go on to become full tendon tears that require surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are stem cells?

Stem cells serve as the starting material of the body and the precursor to all other cell types. Stem cells are unspecialized cells capable of transforming into a range of other cell types but also able to replicate themselves to produce more stem cells. The body uses stem cells to heal and regenerate tissues by activating the stem cells to mature into the type of cell needed by the body.

What are adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs)?
  • Regenerative cells are cell types that naturally promote tissue regeneration and homeostasis by facilitating the generation of new cells to replace old or injured cells in a particular tissue. Adipose-derived regenerative cells, also known as Stromal Vascular Fraction, are cells isolated from adipose (fat) tissue, where they are found in high concentrations. Regenerative cells include stem cells, notably vaPS cells, and MSCs, which can mature into multiple cell types, progenitor cells, macrophages, and other cell types that promote tissue regeneration and healing. These cells work together through a complex system of signaling, resulting in synergistic healing effects that are greater than the effect that any one cell type can have on its own.
  • Multiple studies show that ADRCs can be effective in treating a variety of soft tissue and bone conditions and have a high safety profile.
