04 May Stem Cell Therapy for Wound Healing
Nonhealing wounds due to venous leg ulcers or diabetic neuropathy can lead to systemic infection or osteomyelitis, which can result in the need for amputation. Fortunately, treatment with amniotic membrane has been shown to work significantly better than traditional treatments. While the membrane itself has no stem cells in it, there are significant amounts of growth factors. A lot of wound physicians will inject amniotic fluid around the sides of the wound as well to assist with wound closure too!
