Amniotic Injections Q & A

What are amniotic injections?

Stem cells can be found throughout your body and typically come from two sources: adult tissues and embryos. These cells have the unique ability to create the cells that make up your muscles, cartilage, blood, and skin. With their regenerative capabilities, stem cells can aid in repairing foot and ankle injuries and healing degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Amniotic injections are a treatment option that uses a mixture of stem cells taken from amniotic fluid and amniotic membrane. Injections of these stem cells can be used to treat your foot and ankle complications.

When other treatment methods have failed or are not a viable option for your condition, Dr. Patel may recommend amniotic injections may be recommended.

What complications can amniotic injections treat?

Amniotic injections are a treatment option that can help remedy the injuries or conditions you may be having with your feet and ankles, without the use of steroids or surgery. With its healing properties, this treatment option is commonly used for complications such as:

  • Tendonitis
  • Pain associated with arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy

Amniotic injections help reduce inflammation, speed up the healing process, and prevent the formation of scar tissue.

What is the procedure for amniotic injections?

As a regenerative medicine specialist, Dr. Patel is highly skilled at providing patients with advanced medical treatment options such as amniotic injections. Amniotic injections use the amniotic fluid, from the full-term delivery of a consensual donor. The fluid is injected into the affected area with a small needle, causing minimal pain to the injection area.

To ensure you are a good candidate for this method, Dr. Patel will properly diagnose your condition and determine the most viable treatment option based on your individual needs.

Amniotic injections are an all-natural, nonsurgical option that can be administered conveniently in Dr. Patel’s office. The number of visits will be determined based on your condition. Dr. Patel uses this procedure to help you overcome discomfort and get back to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
