Award-Winning Podiatrist in Sugar Land & Houston, TX, For Stem Cell Therapy
Want To Avoid Foot Surgery? Try The Virtually Pain-Free Stem Cell Therapy For Arthritis, Tendon Damage, Ligament Damage & Wounds.
AtVargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, 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.
What Is Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy?
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.
What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Unlike more traditional steroid injections or surgical procedures, amniotic stem cell injections carry little risk and have numerous healing benefits.
- No cartilage loss – While steroid injections can cause the cartilage in your joint or joints to degenerate, stem cell injections will not damage your cartilage at all.
- No painful recovery – In addition to the risks that accompany any kind of surgery, you can expect a long and painful rehabilitation period following orthopedic surgery. Amniotic stem cell injections, on the other hand, are virtually pain free!
- Reduced or no scarring – The regenerative properties of stem cell injections help your body to heal naturally and without the scars left from more invasive surgery.
- Improved healing – Steroid injections typically treat only your painful symptoms in an attempt 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 surgery can be avoided altogether rather than simply delayed!
Is Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy Controversial?
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.
