Many people may not be familiar with regenerative medicine, but it is a powerful tool in healthcare for the growth of new supportive joint tissues, that can be life-changing for those afflicted by chronic joint pain. Bone and cartilage injury or degeneration can occur as a result of bone fractures or joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, and can have costly economic, social, and quality of life impact.
Amniotic stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option that involves the injection of a rich source of amniotic membrane allograft into the affected area or joint to naturally reduce pain and inflammation, lubricate the joints, and restore mobility, while aiding in the healing process of damaged joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
Amniotic membrane contains the following benefits:
- Cytokines - natural anti-inflammatory agent
- Growth Factors - A group of proteins that stimulates the growth of specific tissues, such as cartilage
- Hyaluronic Acid - A natural lubricant for cartilage that also promotes new cartilage growth
- Non-steroidal therapy
- No adverse reactions reported
What is amniotic stem cell therapy?
At edicine we offer a nonsurgical regenerative therapy option for bone and joint disorders with Surforce cryopreserved amniotic membrane allograft joint injections performed under ultrasound guidance to promote successful outcomes. Surforce cryopreserved amniotic membrane allograft is produced from the harvested donations of human amniotic membrane from healthy individuals pre-screened to be free from risk factors and active infections of applicable communicable disease agents and diseases as required by the FDA.
What blood or human tissue components are used?
Human amniotic membrane is the innermost layer of the placenta composed of structural collagen and extracellular matrix, biologically active cells, and a large number of important regenerative molecules.
What alternatives are there?
- Physical therapy
