Stem Cell regeneration therapy has been around for decades, according to Dr. Rodney Dade, who performed the procedure on Mark Stickley in the Fairfax office of his practice, StemCell Arts. The procedure works well on injuries to the ligaments, joint or tendons, where the bone isn’t rubbing against bone. A typical patient who could benefit would be someone suffering from severe arthritis or people with shoulder pain, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow or chronic back and neck pain.”
