FAQs on Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy in Round Rock TX


Amniotic Stem Cells Chicago

For hip, knee, shoulder pain, degenerative or rheumatoid arthritis, neurodegenerative conditions, autoimmune syndromes, amniotic stem cell therapy represents a cutting edge approach to effective, nonoperative tissue repair and symptom relief. This therapy offers an effective alternative to possibly risky surgery.



Why is amniotic stem cell therapy important?

Researchers have figured out that amniotic fluid maintains a high concentration of secretomes, stem cells, growth factors, exosomes, and mRNA, which is more than adult bone marrow. The material is obtained ethically by consenting donors and processed at an FDA regulated facility.

How do amniotic fluid stem cells work?

When provided clinically, amniotic stem cells play a vital role in the body’s healing process. These stem cells receive inductive signals from the body (inflammatory signals) which directs them to the area of damage in the body. Stem cells can specialize into the same type of cell that was injured, including kidney, lung, cartilage, muscle, tendon, ligaments and others. Stem cell therapy delivered in high concentration will promote natural healing.

How are amniotic fluid stem cells given?

The amniotic stem cell therapy procedure is simple, taking only around 15 minutes. It either involves an injection, infusion, nebulizer or intranasal procedure. For an injection, the doctor first often numbs the region using lidocaine. Then, the procedure needle is inserted using fluoroscopy or ultrasound (x-ray guidance) to assure correct placement. Then, the amniotic fluid derived stem cells are injected into the joint or damaged body region. After the needle is removed, a dry bandage is applied.

For an infusion, an IV is started and the regenerative biologic is placed into the body. This works well for systemic conditions, organ failure, neurodegenerative disorders and more. Depending on the condition, the nebulizer or intranasal approach may be added.

Who is a candidate for amniotic fluid stem cell procedures?

Candidates for amniotic fluid stem cell therapy include anyone who has:


  • Cartilage injuriesStem Cells Chicago
  • Soft-tissue defects
  • Sports Injuries
  • Rotator Cuff, Achilles Injuries
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Muscle injuries
  • Injured nerves
  • Tendinosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint tendinitis
  • COPD
  • Kidney Failure
  • Neuropathy
  • Neurologic Conditions
  • Heart Failure

What is involved in recovery following an amniotic fluid stem cell injection?

You should attempt normal activity following stem cell therapy, with a 1-2 day period of very light activities. Also, range of motion activities ar encouraged. For an very active person, most providers advise rest with only normal activity (walking, sitting, stair climbing) for a few weeks after the procedure. Expect to have some soreness at the injection site, which will improve after a few days.

Basically, the post-procedure restrictions are minimal!

Does amniotic fluid derived stem cell therapy work?

Amniotic derived stem cell therapy has been studied in both musculoskeletal and system indications, with excellent results being seen to date. This includes for knee arthritis, tendonitis, shoulder injuries and organ failure.


A search for amniotic stem cell therapy into PubMed displays thousands of results for MANY conditions, both joint related and systemic. This includes cardiac, kidney, neurological, stroke, arthritis, diabetes and many more.

What are the ethical aspects of using amniotic fluid derived stem cells?

Since the amniotic stem cells come from donated amniotic fluid obtained during cesarean section, there is zero-risk to the unborn child. The fluid is usually discarded after birth. After the amniotic fluid is separated from the placenta, it is tested for various genetic abnormalities and processed at an FDA regulated lab.

What are the benefits of amniotic stem cell therapy?

Many reports show that amniotic fluid stem cells are useful for treating wounds, corneal injury, spine conditions, and tendon tears. Amniotic stem cell injections have been used well over 10,000 times in the U.S. with no adverse reactions.
