Amniofix​

What is AmnioFix?

Amniofix is a nonsurgical, regenerative solution to hip, knee, and shoulder pain as well as tendinitis. AmnioFix is human placental tissue composed of both the amnion and chorion layers of the amniotic sac. This tissue is dehydrated, micronized and sterilized to be delivered as an injection and is a rich source of growth factors, hyaluronic acid, proteins, essential nutrients, and a low risk of immune response. It is also known as an Amniotic Derived Stem Cell Allograft. –Learn More

Is it safe?

Yes it is a safe product. AmnioFix is processed by MiMedx’s proprietary PURION® process which sterilizes the product. All donors are tested for infectious diseases, similar to the testing done for blood donation, and additional sterility testing is performed once the tissue has been processed.

The injections have had no reported adverse effects in the US or Europe and have been used on hundreds of thousands of patients.

Is it covered by insurance?

At this time, amniotic products are approved for insurance for use in wound healing.  Amniotic products are not covered by insurance for joint pain, arthritis, or ligament and tendon injuries.

How does it work?

AmnioFix contains 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 recruit the body’s own stem cells to the injured site to help enhance the body’s normal healing process, help the site to heal, and help your own cells regenerate the damaged tissue.

What benefits are included in amniotic injection therapy?

No, AmnioFix does not contain live stem cells. AmnioFix contains growth factors, which have been shown through published research to recruit your body’s own stem cells to the site to enhance the healing process. Amniotic Tissue Allografts should not to be confused with stem cells from embryos. This type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac – not an embryo. No ethical questions are raised for Amniotic Tissue Allografts.

Her acupuncture is the best treatment for me with chronic back pain. She’s always looking for new techniques to benefit her patients. I don’t know how I could manage my issues without her"

How do you use Amniofix?

Just as with stem cells and PRP, we can inject the Amniofix using ultrasound guidance directly into joints, tendons, and ligaments to nonsurgically treat joint pain and help heal the immediate surrounding tissue. We have also had excellent results when we use Amniofix in conjunction with stem cells and PRP.
