At Foot & Ankle Associates, we are excited to be able to offer the incredible regenerative properties of amniotic stem cell therapy as an alternative to surgery. This virtually pain-free procedure utilizes the exceptional healing properties of amniotic fluid to treat a number of painful or immobilizing conditions, including degenerative arthritis, plantar fasciitis, tendon damage, ligament damage, and wounds.
Amniotic tissue is found in the umbilical cord and the membrane that surrounds a baby in the mother’s womb. This tissue contains unique healing properties due to its high concentration of stem cells. The stem cells of amniotic tissue include a component called extra-cellular matrix (ECM), which cannot be found in other types of stem cells.
During your amniotic stem cell therapy procedure, your podiatrist will inject specially treated amniotic tissue into the injured joint or area. The ECM in these stem cells will effectively jumpstart your body’s own cells into repairing your injury.
Patients who receive amniotic stem cell therapy typically report a decrease in pain within a few days after the procedure. They also report improved overall function within a few weeks.
Unlike more traditional steroid injections or surgical procedures, amniotic stem cell injections carry little risk and have numerous healing benefits.
Amniotic stem cell therapy is considered safe, ethical, and noncontroversial. The amniotic tissue is collected from consenting mothers at the time of Caesarean section. There is absolutely no risk or harm to a fetus or baby at the time of collection.
