WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
The human body, both tissue and bone are made of tiny cells that have developed to function in every area of the body. Hair cells do not serve the same purpose as kidney cells or blood cells. All of the cells that compose our bodies are fully developed. The stem cells, however, that are collected, are essentially “blank cells”. These blank cells have not developed into any particular type of cell therefore they are able to mimic or adapt to the cells in a particular area of the body. For example, if stem cells are introduced in the liver, they can mold into liver cells. This is the same for cartilage and tissue cells.
WHAT IS AN AMNIOTIC FLUID (AF) INJECTION?
- Amniotic Fluid contains a rich mixture of collagens, cytokines, elastins, and growth factors that creates an extra-cellular matrix which supports healing and has the potential to reduce scarring and inflammation.
- AF is filled with growth factors which assist the body in tissue repair, reducing pain and inflammation and contributing to the regeneration and reconstruction of injured tissue.
WHAT ARE POTENTIAL REGENERATIVE MEDICINE BENEFITS?
- Renews, repairs and promotes growth factors for pain/ injuries
- Promotes and releases natural regenerative growth factors
- Regulates inflammation to aid and speed the healing process
- Improve joint, tendon and ligament functions
- Little to no downtime, a safe and fast recovery
- Promotes new tissue growth, and healing properties

How are regenerative cells collected?
Sourcing and Evaluation Follows FDA Approved Guidelines
- Allografts do not require fetal sacrifice
- Recovery is performed with maternal consent during elective Cesarean delivery
- Donor tissue is recovered using safest recovery technique and sterile equipment to minimize bioburden contamination
- Amniotic tissues are procured through a network of qualified and trained recovery partners, following stringent screening and recovery protocols in a highly controlled processing environment
- All tissues processed aseptically
- Membrane allografts are sterilized
ALTERNATIVES TO SURGERY
Joint replacements are one of the most common orthopedic surgeries suggested for pain relief. With a surgery comes multiple appointments, recovery down time, pain, scars, and occasionally hardware damage done to your body. Our procedures help alleviate pain and the conditions causing it, with a same day injection. There is little to no downtime and most patients return to normal activity the same day.
DO I NEED TO PREPARE FOR THE INJECTION?
It is vital that all patients stop taking any over the counter medications, especially NSAIDs, prior to this procedure (Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Advil, etc.). We recommend staying as hydrated as possible and drinking as much water as you can days leading up to the procedure. Eat a good meal before you injection. Your doctor will go over all preparations prior to your procedure with you.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE INJECTION?
The aftercare for most regenerative therapy is relatively simple. Patients will resume activity at their own pace. The pain from the process typically will last a few days, occasionally longer, and some patients have more severe or sporadic pain than others. After the regenerative medicine procedures, a variety of techniques to help maximize the outcome are utilized, including the use of nutritional supplements and physical therapy, as well as the avoidance of smoking and alcohol intake – which diminish stem cell output. Additionally, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) will be restricted for just a few weeks.
