AmnioFix is an injectable bioactive tissue which contains growth factors and cytokines that effectively reduces inflammation, scar tissue formation, and enhances healing of micro-tears in soft tissue. The AmnioFix injectable is human amniotic membrane grafted in a powder form that is mixed with an anesthetic for injection into the injured area.
Benefits of AmnioFix:
All of the amniotic membrane tissue for AmnioFix is donated by healthy consenting mothers undergoing scheduled cesarean sections. The amniotic membrane is the cover that was surrounding the baby and is typically discarded after the baby is born. The recovery of the membrane does not affect the baby or the delivery process. Therefore, the donation process does not share the ethical concerns associated with embryonic tissue. All tissue donors are tested similarly to tests performed for donated blood. The amniotic membrane undergoes a specific process to thoroughly cleanse and preserve the tissue. AmnioFix allografts are procured and processed in the United States according to the standards and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United Stated Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Before and After Treatment
Before treatment: The patient will be scheduled for an evaluation and likely some diagnostic imaging such an X-ray or MRI to determine if AmnioFix is the right treatment for your condition.
After treatment: The treatment site might appear red and be tender to the touch. The procedure might cause some soreness that may last for up to 2-3 days. The patient will be scheduled for a follow-up with your doctor 8 weeks following your AmnioFix treatment.
