Bioinductive Implant to Treat Rotator Cuff Disease
Bioinductive implant is a revolutionary new procedure for treating patients that have rotator cuff disease. Tendons can heal through the Rotation Medical Bioinductive Implant by introducing new tissue growth. This helps patients perform regular activities much quicker than traditional treatments. The procedure helps in reducing the risk of re-tears and degeneration as well.
Rotation Medical Bioinductive Implant is a minimally invasive procedure for people experiencing rotator cuff tendon tears in the shoulder joint. Shoulder disability and pain are usually because of rotation cuff tears. It affects more than 3 million people in the US every year. Most patients avoid getting a surgery because it can result in a lengthy and painful postoperative period.
Thomas & Bigler Knee and Shoulder Institute, led by board certified orthopedic surgeons Dr. Steven C. Thomas and Dr. Gregory T. Bigler, provides orthopedic surgery to patients in Las Vegas, Nevada, while also serving areas such as greater Pahrump, Bullhead City, Lake Havasu, and Mesquite, NV.
Understanding Bioinductive Implant
The Rotation Medical Bioinductive Implant is the size of a postage stamp. It is a collagen-based implant that is delivered through a small incision arthroscopically. The incision is made over the injured rotator cuff tendon and is closed using proprietary staples.
The implant is capable of inducing new tendinous tissue formation right over the tendon surface. It results in a thicker tendon. This is the only implant of its type to induce new tissue growth to help tendons heal faster.
The Rotation Medical Bioinductive Implant has demonstrated remarkable success rates when used early in the disease. It can easily prevent progression of the disease and reduce the risk of re-tears. The implant addresses the underlying issue of the problem – excessive strain and stress in the tendons.
How Does Rotation Medical Bioinductive Implant Work?
This is a highly porous implant which allows the new fibrovascular tissue to fully fill it. The implant comes with distinct biomechanical features, which induces new tissue growth. The tissue is remodeled into the tendon-like, linearly placed tissue.
New tissue growth is gradually absorbed within the implant over a period of six months. It leaves a layer of biologically augmented new tissue within the existing tendon.
Advantages of the Bioinductive Implant
There are several potential benefits to the Bioinductive Implant depending on the extent of rotator cuff disease. Few of these are:
- Decreased sling time
- Quicker recovery
- Prevention of disease progression
- Partial thickness tears heal quicker
Rotator Cuff Injuries Are Common in the US
One of the most common causes for shoulder pain the country is rotator cuff disease, which affects over 4 million people on an average every year. Most people avoid having a surgery done until the pain becomes unbearable.
Clinical Evidence Supporting Bioinductive Implants
Bioinductive implants are highly capable as can be demonstrated by a growing body of evidence. Multiple studies have proven that the implants are effective and safe. FDA clearance was obtained for the procedure in 2014. It has already helped thousands of patients in the United States.
