Shoulder treatments offered by Dr. Yaffe include:
The Shoulder REGENETEN bio-conductive implant is a device that is surgically placed in the shoulder joint to treat partial thickness or revision rotator cuff injuries.
It works by releasing small amounts of molecules (such as growth factors) into the tendon, which encourages new tissue development and enhances the healing process.
Over time, this helps to improve the quality of the tendon’s tissue, making it stronger and better able to withstand tears or other damage.
The most common signs of rotator cuff injuries are pain and stiffness in the shoulder, difficulty extending or flexing the arm, decreased range of motion in the shoulder joint, reduced strength while lifting or lowering items, swelling in the affected area, and a crackling sensation when moving your arm.
Dr. Yaffe offers two types of minimally-invasive shoulder replacements:
The difference between these two surgeries is that anatomic shoulder replacement restores normal shoulder anatomy while reverse total shoulder replacement compensates for any loss of function related to chronic degredation of the rotator cuff.
