Amniotic Membrane OR Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Chronic tendon or joint pain may benefit from multiple therapies which inject fluids of varying proteins into tendons, ligaments, or intraarticular joint spaces, including PRP, Synvisc®, or Stem Cells. The amniotic membranes of developing embryo, that is, amnion (innermost lining) and chorion (a layer next to it), have the properties with significant potential for healing soft tissue such a ligaments, tendons, and improving even joint spaces resulting in a reduction in joint pain. Sources of human-derived tissue providing growth factors includes amniotic membrane tissue. In addition, umbilical cord tissue isolates provide Mesenchymal Stem Cells for injection without the difficulty of harvesting Stem Cells from a patient’s own fat cells.
