Investigating rotator cuff treatment options

San Fransisco, CA Dr. Brian Feeley

At UCSF, the National Stem Cell Foundation is partnering with the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation to support the work of Dr. Brian Feeley. Rotator cuff (RC) tears are the most common shoulder injury, affecting up to 50% of the population over 65. After injury and repair, changes in the muscle can influence clinical outcomes. Dr. Feeley is working with a newly discovered muscle stem cell population to investigate new treatment options and improve clinical outcomes for these debilitating injuries.
