REGENERATIVE Therapy Q & A
Currently, there are also ongoing research trials for amniotic products in osteoarthritis for patients who are not candidates for PRP or treatment with their own stem cells. They are also a safe option for patients who are at high risk for complications due to total joint replacement because they have heart or lung disease or have had blood clots from other surgical procedures. It is important to understand how this treatment can help patients, but it is also very important to understand what it is “not.”
Amniotic products do not contain stem cells
