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
  • Partial MCL Tears, Knee
  • Meniscus Tears
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Ligament Sprains

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.

Chronic pain in shoulder and upper arm relieved by Dr. Reza's Lavage treatment using needling and ultrasound combined with Cortisone. Very professional, clean, nice office surroundings and friendly staff.

I took my wife to Dr Reza Dehdari to inject a PRP shot. He did a great job a such a painful shot but my wife did not feel a pain at all. He is very caring doctor. He called a few time to make sure everything is ok. We highly recommending him. Thank you Dr. Dehdari.
