AmnioFix Non-Surgical Regenerative Solutions
AmnioFix is used by physicians to enhance healing, modulate inflammation, and reduce scar tissue formation in various injuries and conditions.
AmnioFix is an option if conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, and bracing have not provided symptomatic relief, or if you are searching for a non-steroidal option or have reached the limit of steroid injections.
What is AmnioFix?
AmnioFix is a placental tissue allograft composed of the amnion and chorion layers of the amniotic sac, and is delivered as an injection. Amniotic membrane, or the amniotic sac, is formed after conception during the fetal maturation process. The amnion and chorion layers serve as the principle tissue separation between mother and child during pregnancy.
Key elements of amniotic membrane include growth factors, specialized cytokines, and enzyme inhibitors known to help enhance healing.
AmnioFix contains 226 different growth factors, specialized cytokines, and enzyme inhibitors, including some of the most important needed for healing. Growth factors are powerful agents that our bodies produce to signal cells to come to the target site, help the site to heal, and help your own cells regenerate the damaged tissue.
