Amniotic Membrane Injection Procedure

Amniotic Membrane Injection Procedure

Amniotic tissue injections and treatments are now a keystone of regenerative medicine and are being utilized to help treat back and leg pain as stand-alone procedures or in combination with other minimally invasive techniques at the DISC Spine Institute. Recent medical advancements have lead us to recognize that amniotic tissue contains high concentrations of powerful growth factors. These growth factors contain strong anti-inflammatory effects and aid in stem cell proliferation, healthy tissue regeneration, reduction in scar tissue formation and pain relief. The injections and minimally invasive procedures at the DISC Spine Institute are typically outpatient with minimal discomfort.

Scientific Support

There are more than 100 growth factors found in amniotic tissue. These robust growth factors trigger stem cell proliferation and the reduction of scar tissue formation. Two of the more powerful growth factors include Prostaglandin and WNT4. Prostaglandin helps to curb the inflammatory response that is seen after tissue is damaged. This is an important factor in recovery because inflammation has to be controlled before healing can begin. Our state-of-the-art process results in Prostaglandin retrieval that far exceeds the industry standard. This is also true of WNT4, which promotes healing through the process of re-epithelialization. WNT4 signals epidermal cells to move to the area of damaged tissue. This triggers the regenerative process and assists the bodies ability to heal itself.

The placenta is a by product of any normal healthy birth which would otherwise become bio waste. However, new scientific discoveries and advancements have lead us to recognize, harness and utilize the powerful growth factors contained in the amniotic tissue of the placenta. Instead of wasting these powerful growth factors we are now capturing and utilizing them for the benefit of our patients.

Placental tissue is naturally sterile. Additionally, the tissue is put through a litany of tests to ensure it meets our expectations of quality. It is then processed in a highly technical, proprietary procedure that separates out the relevant tissue to be immediately cryo-preserved. This meticulous process meets the highest industry standards and safety protocols. This process ensures the integrity of the tissue and promotes the viability and potency of the growth factors contained within.

The captured growth factors contain strong anti-inflammatory effects and aid in stem cell proliferation, healthy tissue regeneration, reduction in scar tissue formation and pain relief. The injections and minimally invasive procedures are typically outpatient with minimal discomfort due to the expert hands of our specialized spine surgeons.
