For individuals living with knee pain, arthritis, tendonitis, and more, everyday tasks can be uncomfortable and even painful. Amniotic fluid stem cell therapy can help to treat these conditions.
About Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell Therapy
These type of stem cells come from the amniotic sac, not the embryo. These stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties and can be injected into the body for many benefits. While other drugs like cortisone only offer temporary pain relief, stem cells restore damaged tissue to provide long-term pain relief. The growth factors found in amniotic stem cells can replace damaged cells in the body. Stem cells also contain hyaluronic acid, which acts as a sort of lubricant to joints and tendons to help restore mobility.
Who is a Candidate?
Patients who are suffering from any type of ligament, tendon or joint pain may be able to benefit from amniotic stem cell therapy at MetroMD. A consultation with Dr. Alex Martin is needed to help determine if this treatment is a good match for you.
Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell Therapy Benefits
This treatment option is proven to be effective and safe. There are many benefits associated with amniotic fluid stem cell therapy, including:
- Because cells come from an immunoprivileged site, patient rejection is extremely rare.
- Amniotic stem cells do not contain steroids; injections rely on natural anti-inflammatory agents.
- Amniotic stem cells contain hyaluronic acid and growth factors that stimulate cartilage and tissue growth.
- Amniotic fluid is a highly-concentrated source of stem cells which make this form of stem cell injection preferable over those from fat or bone marrow stem cells.
