Amnion Stem Cell Treatment
What is Amnion Stem Cell? Amnion stem cell tissue is different growth factors obtained from amniotic membrane. It is a Non-surgical and non-steroidal option to help relieve pain, reduce scar tissue formation and enhance healing.
What are Stem Cells? Stem cells are the fundamental cells living in the human body. Their most amazing feature is that they can become many types of cell, from skin cells to muscle, from bone to cartilage. Today, stem cells are of great interest with clinical applications.
How Does Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy Work? Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. The amniotic stem cells can jump-start the healing process by creating the cells the damaged tissues need.
What are the benefits of Amniotic Stem Cell Treatment?
Amniotic stem cell therapy is very safe and effective.
Amniotic stem cells rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents and contain NO STEROIDS.
Amniotic stem cells help lubricate the cartilage since they contain hyaluronic acid (a natural lubricant of the joint)
Amniotic stem cells contain growth factors which stimulate tissue growth.
There is no risk of patient rejection with amniotic stem cells.
Amniotic fluid is a highly concentrated source of stem cells. This makes it preferable over embryonic stem cells and the patient’s own stem cells (from fat or bone marrow).
Osteoarthritis, ligament, and tendon injuries are very common problems. Stem cell therapy for knee, feet, ankles, hips, elbows, wrist, hand, etc. is a non-surgical alternative for those who suffer from pain.
