houston tx podiatrist stem cell therapy - alternative to foot surgeryIf a Houston, TX, podiatrist has recently told you that orthopedic surgery is your only option, there may still be another safe and effective alternative. Our award-winning podiatrist at Foot & Ankle Associates explains that amniotic stem cell therapy is a revolutionary and pain-free procedure for treating many painful or immobilizing conditions, such as foot wounds, tendon damage, ligament damage, and degenerative arthritis. Keep reading to learn more about the regenerative abilities of stem cell therapy as an alternative to foot surgery.

What Is Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy? Our Houston, TX, Podiatrist Explains …

Amniotic fluid is a liquid that surrounds a baby before it is born. The high concentration of stem cells that is uniquely found in amniotic fluid provide exceptional healing properties. In addition, the stem cells of amniotic fluid include a component called extra-cellular matrix (ECM), which cannot be found in other types of stem cells. When stem cells from amniotic fluid get injected into your injured foot or ankle, they stimulate your body’s own cells into repairing your injured tissue.

What Are The Benefits Of Stem Cell Therapy?

According to our award-winning Houston, TX, podiatrist, amniotic stem cell injections have virtually no risk. Their benefits, on the other hand, are significant.

  • With stem cell therapy there is no cartilage loss – Steroid injections can cause the cartilage in your joints to deteriorate, sometimes even expediting the need for surgery. Stem cell injections, however, keep your cartilage intact!
  • Stem cell therapy is virtually pain free – While surgery comes with myriad risks and typically precedes a painful rehabilitation, amniotic stem cell injections have very little risk and don’t cause any pain.
  • Stem cell therapy heals your actual injury – Steroid injections don’t address the root cause of your pain. They are simply a band-aid solution to delay surgery. Stem cell injections, on the other hand, promote actual healing in your body. Your condition is treated, not just your symptoms, so you may be able to avoid surgery altogether!

Are There Any Ethical Issues With Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy?

Amniotic stem cell therapy is both ethical and noncontroversial. The amniotic fluid used in this type of therapy comes from consenting mothers during Caesarian sections. Because the fluid is collected at the time of birth, the baby is never at risk for any harm.
