Regenerative Medicine Q & A

Family Health Physical Medicine

What is Amniotic Allograft?

Amniotic tissue comes from a participating mother’s amniotic part of the placenta and may contain hyaluronic acid, growth factor, stem cells, cytokines, and many more attributes that promote regeneration. As such, following an amniotic allograft joint repair procedure, the injected cells may become specialized for the joint and, over time regenerate the damaged tissues. Results may vary among patients, but many report experiencing pain relief in as little as one week to four months. Regenerative therapy regeneration for joint repair is used for acute and chronic injuries, knee meniscal tears, loss of knee joint cartilage and to stop the progression of degenerative arthritis.

How does regenerative medicine work?

For centuries, the medical world has understood the powerful properties a woman’s placenta and amniotic fluid contained therein. These properties provide the foundation for a new life. Placental tissue has long been used as grafts, but figuring out how to isolate these special cells in the amniotic fluid has only recently been cracked.

Today, doctors have access to these treatments so that they can help patients recover more quickly from injury and disease. This is why we are so excited to offer this treatment here at Family Health Physical Medicine. Just think, when you’re injured, your body sets to work to heal itself, sending its resources to the area to provide the necessary material to rebuild. By injecting amniotic allografts directly into the area, our certified nurse practitioner is able to speed up the healing as these cells, which are self-signaling, turn into the specific cells needed to repair your diseased or injured tissue.

Are amniotic allografts safe?

Yes. Amniotic allografts are a natural resource that can contain cytokines, hyaluronic acid, stem cells, growth factor, and much, much, more. The donor is cleared and tested with a complete medical history and monitoring during the duration of the pregnancy. Our medical staff ensures that the amniotic allografts we use are thoroughly tested and cleared for use by the provider.
