Our office proudly provides a variety of amniotic tissue allografts to fit most financial situations. Currently, we are utilizing MiMedix and Skye biologics with excellent results. Please see their websites below.
Amniotic tissue allograft is a regenerative medicine and human amniotic membrane supplied in a powder or liquid form. It contains over 57 natural growth factors that can help control inflammation, reduce scar tissue, and improve 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. All of the amniotic membrane tissue for amniotic tissue allografts are donated by healthy consenting mothers undergoing scheduled Caesarean sections.
Amniotic tissue allograft can be used to treat some common conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, posterior tibialis tendonitis, peroneal tendinitis, bursitis, arthritic joints, ankle sprains, and Plantar fasciitis. Amniotic tissue allografts may be used if other non-surgical treatments (anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, and bracing) have not provided symptomatic relief. Amniotic tissue allografts are also a good alternative for patients wanting a steroid injection or if steroid injections are contraindicated.
The tissue allografts are injected into the injured soft tissue or tendon. The amount of injections needed, will be based on your response to the initial injection. The only side effect of the injection, is a potential for a moderate increase in tenderness and pressure at the treated area, and is normally noticed within 72 hours of treatment.
Amniotic tissue allografts are not covered by health insurance.
We participate with most local and many national insurance plans. However, it is your responsibility to understand whether your insurance has limits on the doctors you can see or the services you can receive. If you provide complete and accurate information about your insurance, we will submit claims to your insurance carrier and receive payments for services. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may be responsible for co-payments, co-insurance, or other deductible amounts. Please contact our billing office or call your insurance carrier should you have any questions.
