Amniotic Stem Cells
The fact that amniotic stem cells come from the maternal placenta that is disposed of by hospital personnel after newborn delivery eliminates ethical, political and moral concerns once associated with other kinds of stem cell therapy. Not only do the mothers who donate their placentas undergo rigorous health screening and have their pregnancy closely monitored, their baby must be born healthy and numerous other criteria satisfied in order for the placenta to be accepted and processed by our FDA-cleared lab.
In the simplest of terms, placental tissue product therapy takes advantage of your body’s ability to repair itself. With amniotic stem cell therapy, our physician injects a small amount of stem cells from amniotic tissues found in the placenta into your damaged joint, spine, or wound. Not only does placental tissue therapy provide anti-inflammatory benefits as seen with “cortisone injections” and “steroid shots”; it also has numerous other regenerative benefits that make placental tissue therapy the ultimate non-surgical treatment.
How Stem Cell Placental Tissue Therapy Works
The role of stem cells in regenerative medicine “stems” from their ability to transform damaged tissue into healthy, revitalized (new) tissue. They are introduced into the body by injection to replace diseased or injured cells in body tissues or organs, where they work together with other cells to regenerate the damaged/unhealthy tissues (damage resulting from aging, trauma, disease, etc.) into healthy cells.
The placental tissue products we use are known scientifically as a tissue allografts. They are derived from amniotic tissues found in the placenta; scientifically proven to support soft tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and minimize/reduce scar tissue; and FDA-cleared for use in the U.S.
