Placenta/Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy
As research and science evolved over time, studies have shown that amniotic and placenta (stem) cells can have a revolutionary effect on the human recovery process.
Regenerative (Stem) cells are the basic components (cells) of our human body. One of their most amazing characteristic is that they can become almost any type of cell, from muscle to bone or skin cell.
Amniotic cells are obtained from the amniotic fluid, which is produced during a caesarean birth. During pregnancy, the amniotic fluid protects the fetus and it feeds it with the necessary supplements needed to sustain life and development. A while back, this fluid was normally discarded, but once researchers got to understand its amazing therapeutic benefits, now it’s collected and stored because of its high concentration of pluripotent stem cells.
Amniotic derived stem cell fluid comes from consenting donors and is processed at an FDA regulated lab. It is checked for all sorts of diseases prior to being accepted for use in others.
Although stem cells have been used for decades, regenerative therapy is fairly new. Following the use of amniotic stem cell injections, more evidence reveals exciting results in muscle repair and pain relief which has made amniotic stem cells possibly the holy grail in treatment.
Amniotic stem cell injections offer the ability to heal damaged tissue naturally. The tissue regeneration and repair properties of the amniotic cell fluid are anti-inflammatory effect that relieves pain and contains natural growth factors that assist in healthy tissue growth. Moreover, the hyaluronic acid that is also in amniotic fluid is an important component of the joint fluid that helps cartilage growth. Amniotic fluid is also a great source of regenerative cells, found in a much higher concentration than the adult bone marrow. And just like when one uses their own stem cells, the use of amniotic fluid doesn’t cause rejection or allergic reaction when injected into a patient.
Amniotic stem cell injections have been getting more attention since they have been openly used by prominent athletes with impressive results and even a few saved careers! The ability to safely and effectively treat painful and debilitating injuries and conditions of the knees, elbows, and shoulders, ankles, foot without lengthy rehabilitation or recovery time isn’t just appealing to professional athletes, but to anyone who wants relief from pain and to return to their favorite activities in about 4-6 weeks. Dr. Truong will determine which regenerative cell (fat, bone marrow, Platelet Rich Plasma, amniotic/placenta) will be appropriate for your condition. This is a customized treatment protocol designed for your body and activity level.
Amniotic cell injections work well for the following indications:
2) Ligament Injury
4) Sports Related Injuries
