AmnioFix Stem Cell Therapy

AmnioFix Stem Cell Therapy

What is Amniofix?

AmnioFix is a state of the art, bioactive tissue matrix allograft. Simply stated, this "stem cell" therapy contains many proteins and growth factors that help to rapidly repair damaged tissues. Specifically, this therapy contains over 285 regulatory proteins that reduce scar tissue and rapidly decreases inflammation.

What is Special About Amniofix?

The really neat aspect about this therapy is that it can be administered via injection or by wrapping a thin sheet containing the cells around the wounded area. This procedure can be done in a wide vareity of settings, including the office.

How is it harvested?

Amniofix is a placental tissue allograft composed of the amnion and chorion layers of the amniotic sac. This tissue is donated by healthy, consenting mothers after they have delivered a live birth by C-section. The recovery of this placenta tissue does not affect the baby or the delivery process. Furthermore, all samples are tested for infectious diseases prior to harvesting.
