A non-surgical, regenerative solution for arthritis and sports medicine injuries, AmnioFix is part of a revolutionary treatment protocol to enhance healing, combat inflammation and reduce scar formation. Delivered as an injection, AmnioFix is essentially a placental tissue allograft comprised of amnion and chorion layers of the amniotic sac.
To better understand, the amniotic membrane or sac is formed after conception during the maturation process of a fetus. The amnion and chorion layers are the main tissues dividing the mother and baby during a pregnancy. Elements found in the amniotic membrane are essential to healing, and include growth factors, cytokines and enzyme inhibitors. With this in mind, it’s important to understand that consenting mothers donate amniotic tissues for AmnioFix willingly, and the recovery of the placenta does not pose a threat to the delivery process or the baby. Furthermore, donors are tested and a specialized sterilization process is conducted to ensure patient safety.
When human tissues become damaged, growth factors stimulate cells to report to an area of injury to begin healing. As such, these cells help existing cells in the injured tissues regenerate. AmnioFix has been shown to amplify this process, with over 226 highly concentrated growth factors that recruit a body’s own stem cells to a damaged area for healing. Critical growth factors contained in AmnioFix include Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-B), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FBF) and Platelet Derived Growth Factor A & B (PDGF AA & BB).
For patients that have utilized anti-inflammatories, physical therapy and other conservative means to no avail, AmnioFix is an advanced option that addresses the following conditions:
- Osteoarthritis (hip, knee, shoulder ankle)
- Tendinitis (including chronic cases)
- Partial Tendon Tears
- Partial ACL Tears, Knee
