Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy
Amniotic tissue is packed with a high concentration of elements essential for tissue regeneration, including growth factors, anti-inflammatory agents, and hyaluronic acid. As with PRP, amniotic stem cell injections provide your body with more of the materials it needs to accelerate the natural healing process already underway.
It’s important to clarify that these are amniotic rather than embryonic tissues, meaning they come from the amniotic sac and not an embryo or fetus. The tissue is voluntarily donated after scheduled cesarean sections; collecting it poses no risks whatsoever to the health or comfort of a child or mother. We will of course be happy to answer any questions you may have about this treatment to ensure that you feel comfortable using it as an option.
Amniotic stem cell injections can be effective for a variety of conditions, including:
- Tendon Injuries and Tendinitis
- Ligament Injuries
Furthermore, because amniotic tissue is “immune-privileged” by nature, there is almost no risk that it will be rejected by your body’s own cells.
Finding the Right Route to Relief
We are proud to offer advanced regenerative treatments to our patients, but that does not mean we will always recommend them for every situation.
There are many situations where other conservative options alone will be just as effective on their own. But when a faster recovery or potential to finally overcome a chronic condition is essential, regenerative medicine can make a huge difference.
No matter what kind of foot or ankle care you need, please don’t hesitate to call (480) 962-4281 to schedule an appointment at any of our three area offices.
