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
  • Sports Injuries

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...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

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.

My son went to see Dr. Reza for a shoulder injury he received from repeated use due to training. My son had tried physical therapy and a cortisone shot with little success. Dr. Reza thoroughly explained the benefits of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and he felt confident he could help my son. The procedure itself is amazing and my son was comfortable the entire time. I LOVE the fact that my son's own body was healing itself without the use of drugs. His shoulder is so much better and he was able to resume training after two weeks. I would highly recommend the PRP shot with Dr. Reza and will definitely see him again if the need arose.
