A 68 year-old patient who is an avid tennis player and golfer. An MRI one year ago showed significant arthritis of the right shoulder with also tendinitis of the rotator cuff. The following statement is from the patient: “Dr. McClish ordered an MRI to see if my rotator cuff was the problem. I was in pain and was having trouble even making a golf swing. I was elated when he called and said stem cell surgery could possibly help me. We went ahead with the stem cell surgery, which took about four hours. After the procedure Dr. McClish told me I could play golf in about three days. I noticed that the pain in my shoulder was gone and I started hitting the ball in three days. In the next two weeks I was back to a full swing and still no pain. I’m 68 years old and was not looking forward to a shoulder replacement. As of this time one year later my shoulders is working and feeling fine. My golf game is getting better. Thank you Dr. McClish.”
