FIRST-IN-U.S. TRIAL TO TREAT SHOULDERS
It’s the first such FDA-approved clinical trial in the U.S.—one in which a person’s own fat-derived adult stem cells are used to treat shoulder injuries. The trial, which began in December 2016, is available at Sanford Health (headquartered in North and South Dakota).

The principal investigators, Jason Hurd, M.D. and Mark Lundeen, M.D., are both orthopedic surgeons. They are examining whether or not adipose stem cells from someone’s own abdominal fat can safely repair small and partial thickness tears in the rotator cuff by activating the body’s natural healing processes when injected into the injury area.
