Amniotic Tissue Injections

Amniotic tissue is comprised of the umbilical cord and membrane separating a baby from the mother’s womb. The umbilical cord and placenta are donated after delivery and the healthy tissue is collected. Amniotic tissue contains high levels of growth factors and other cell types that are vital to healing injuries and is also immunenaïve, which means that there is no concern for the body to reject it, such as with blood transfusions or organ transplants. When amniotic tissue is introduced to the injury, the growth factors within the tissue go to work healing the affected area.

Amniotic membrane, which is rich in growth factors, can help repair the worn out, damaged tissues in pathological joint conditions, osteoarthritis, tendinopathies, and other inflammatory disease.

The naturally present cells in amniotic fluid have anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties to provide a non-steroidal approach to long lasting pain relief.

The regenerative effect of stem cell rich tissue can reduce further degeneration providing a longer lasting relief without the side effects of steroid injections.

Amniotic membrane application is recommended for patients suffering from debilitating musculoskeletal pain where conservative management options such as activity restriction, medications, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment and steroid injections have failed.
Research has demonstrated the regenerative potential of amniotic membrane stem cells. Animal studies showed cartilage defects can be enhanced by the implantation of mesenchymal stem cells, and in the treatments of various pathological conditions of joints with no single unfavorable reaction. Hence, amniotic membrane is an exciting new treatment option that patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain might want to consider.

*Amniotic tissue and umbilical cord blood donations are agreed to by healthy mothers prior to delivery. They are donated following the delivery of full-term healthy babies by scheduled Cesarean Section. The tissues are preserved and processed by individual companies. Each company follows all rules and regulations established by the Food & Drug Administration and American Association of Tissue Banks.
