Regenerative medicine is a collection of practices that results in replacing or reengineering human tissues in order to promote tissue regeneration. There are many types of regenerative medicine, including amnion (amnio) based stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) and shockwave therapy. These types of treatment use the body's own natural means for repairing and restoring lost or damaged tissue, which leads to true healing of an injury or disease, not just treatment of the pain or other symptoms. At ProHealth Foot & Ankle Surgeons, we have extensive experience when it comes to foot and ankle pain treatment. We have pioneered the industry’s latest proven alternatives to surgery and steroids. Our same-day procedures will alleviate your foot and ankle pain regardless of the cause.
Our revolutionary regenerative cell procedures treat all the damages and underlying conditions that cause you pain. With just one visit to our specialists you can be on the road to living a pain free life. Our doctors utilize amniotic membrane and fluid therapy to rebuild and strengthen damaged tissue. Amniotic membrane and fluid is rich in the components that are believed to contribute to a wound healing response, characterized by minimal inflammatory activity and regenerative rather than scar-mediated healing. These components work to kick-start the body’s own rejuvenation and healing processes.
The goal of amnio is three-fold:
- Reduce inflammation (hence decrease and/or alleviate pain and swelling)
- Reduce scar tissue formation (hence quicker recovery and acceptable cosmetic result)
- Enhance the healing of micro-tears in soft tissue (hence allowing earlier return to daily life activities and negating need for surgery).
