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, tendon damage, ligament damage, and wounds.
Amniotic fluid surrounds a fetus as it grows in the mother’s womb. This fluid contains unique healing properties due to its high concentration of stem cells. The stem cells of amniotic fluid 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 fluid into the injured joint or area. The ECM in these stem cells will effectively jumpstart your body’s own cells into repairing your injured tissue.
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 ethical and noncontroversial. The amniotic fluid 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.
