Amniotic Allograft is an option for treatment of joint/tendon pain for patients seeking alternatives to surgery
Amniotic Allograft is regenerative tissue from the placenta which is rich in growth factors and proteins needed for healing. Harnessing this stem-cell like treatment is beneficial in achieving superior clinical outcomes for patients with challenging tendon disorders such as Achilles tendonitis/tendonosis, plantar fasciitis and is also utilized to accelerate wound repair.
Is Amniotic Regenerative Medicine safe and ethical?
Amniotic Tissue Allografts are both safe and effective. The injections have been used over 10,000 times in the United States with no reported adverse side effects and have a 100% safety record in Europe with hundreds of thousands of patients.
Amniotic Tissue Allografts should not to be confused with stem cells from embryos. This type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac – not an embryo. No ethical questions are raised for Amniotic Tissue Allografts.
What conditions can amniotic stem cell injections treat?
Amniotic stem cell therapy may be useful in treating pain associated with the following:
• Achilles tendonitis
• Other related foot and ankle conditions
