cells in general, may be obtained from a patientís own bone marrow or
fat stores. Amniotic fluid by itself is a natural viscosupplement that
exhibits anti-inflammatory properties and contains stem cells, which can
help with tissue repair and regeneration. The stem cells from amniotic
fluid are immuno-privileged, that is it does not result in an immune
response that affects the host or the stem cells. The amniotic fluid
stem cell solution used at our clinic is minimally processed by the
product developer and is considered an implant and not a drug.
It is important to note that the therapeutic solution used for knee
intra articular injection is amniotic fluid and the stem cell contain
therein are not embryonic in nature.
No embryonic or fetal stem cells are used for therapy so as to adhere to
a strict moral and ethical standard of practice.
