What is the best current delivery method to ensure mesenchymal stem cells get to the intended target in the shoulder?

Orthopedics Today—June 14, 2017

Orthopedics Today featured Brian C. Halpern, MD, chief of the primary care sports medicine service at HSS, who answered the question "What is the best current delivery method to ensure mesenchymal stem cells get to the intended target in the shoulder?"

Dr. Halpern said the best delivery method is based on the injection technique, which can vary due to the nature of the injury. "The injection approach and accuracy has significant therapeutic effects when addressing pathology in joints or tendons," he said.

"Imaging leads to more precise placement of the injectate", added Dr. Halpern. "For tendinosis and/or partial tears in the biceps and/or the rotator cuff, ultrasound is the best vehicle to visualize the maximum site of injury/pathology to facilitate the injection."
