“This was a spectacular experience that saved me a lot of pain, money, and aggravation!!! In October I was diagnosed with a partial tear of my labrum and rotator cuff. I went to see an Orthopedist who suggested a cortisone shot, told me to wait a few weeks to see if it begins the healing process if not, schedule a surgery and take care of it while I’m still (fairly) young (I’m 52) and in good health…After 3 days the cortisone shot wore off I began researching orthopedic surgeons…I decided to reach out to Tom Lavrigata, I knew he had great contacts at one of the most reputable orthopedic hospitals in Manhattan…During the conversation, where we discussed the long recovery period related to surgery, Tom asked if I researched platelet injections…Funny, because another friend of mine, a doctor, had mentioned that for a different ailment…I explained that I hadn’t but I would start that day…After a quick google search, I learned of the great success people was having with this least invasive procedure and decided to definitely give it a shot (no pun intended)…I called Tom, we scheduled an appointment at his location. I was really impressed with how nice, new, clean and professional his location was…Within 15 minutes he had withdrawn my blood and started the spinning down of my platelet process…He then reinjected the platelets into my shoulder – minimal pain….and said let’s see how you feel in 2 weeks…I have to tell you – within two days my shoulder started feeling better, it wasn’t healed bit the platelets went to work on my tendinitis and bursitis, relieving and reducing a lot of the swelling almost instantaneously. 6 weeks later and I am back in the gym doing shoulder and chest exercises – let’s be honest, my shoulder is not completely healed, it will take more time to regenerate the injured area, but I have much, much, much less pain and fewer issues moving my arm.

I am considering doing another injection in a few weeks, just to really enhance the healing process. I am so grateful that Tom and I discussed this process and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of having surgery. The process is so fast and pain-free that you should definitely consider it. Tom was great through the entire process, explained what they were going to do, the healing stages and then stayed in touch with me on a weekly basis. 100% recommend these guys. they will change the game or surgery with this new procedure! Thanks, Tom.” James H. From Yelp
