Award-Winning Podiatrists In Merrillville, IN, For Stem Cell Treatment

Treatment Overview

podiatrist for foot ankle stem cell treatmentNew cutting-edge treatment options like amniotic membrane stem cell treatments may be used to successfully treat patients with conditions of the connective tissue, such as Achilles tendonitis and degenerative arthritis.

Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With amniotic stem cell therapy, our sports medicine podiatrist in Merrillville, IN, introduces stem cells from amniotic tissues into your body. These stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroids. However, stem cell therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard pain-relieving treatments.

While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body. Additionally, stem cell treatment contains hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

Benefits Of Stem Cell Treatment

Amniotic stem cell therapy is very safe and effective. Learn more about several benefits this treatment has to offer:

  • Amniotic stem cells contain no steroids. Instead, the treatments rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines.
  • Amniotic stem cells contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and promotes new cartilage growth.
  • Amniotic stem cells contain growth factors, which stimulate tissue growth.
  • With amniotic stem cells, there is no threat of patient rejection.
  • Lastly, amniotic fluid is a highly concentrated source of stem cells, which makes this type of stem cell treatment preferable over embryonic stem cells and the patient’s own stem cells (from fat or bone marrow).

Is Stem Cell Treatment Safe?

Yes. More than 10,000 stem cell treatments have been performed at Weil Foot and Ankle Institute without a single reported adverse side effect. 

  • Amniotic stem cell therapy is a preferred type of stem cell therapy, because the cells come from an immunoprivileged site, which means that patient-rejection is extremely rare.
  • The use of amniotic stem cells is well-researched, safe, and effective. Amniotic stem cells have been used by ophthalmologists and plastic surgeons for about 20 years.
  • All amniotic stem cell donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).
