Tennessee Regenerative Sports Medicine now offers AmnioFix to further augment the regenerative process

Amniotic Allograft By AmnioFixwhen dealing with musculoskeletal disorders.  In addition to Prolotherapy

tendons, ligaments as well as certain osteoarthritic conditions, AmnioFix

is a positive addition for:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tennis and Golfers Elbow
  • Achilles and Plantar Fascia Tendinopathy
  • Hamstring injuries

AmnioFix is a human amniotic membrane allograft.  There have been over 500,000 allografts distributed for use in various types of surgery and wound care.  Other forms of amniotic membrane have been used for almost 100 years.  AmnioFix contains natural factors, called growth factors, for homologous use to modulate inflammation, reduce scar tissue formation, and enhance 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.  AmnioFix contains some of the most important growth factors needed for healing.  There have been 226 different growth factors, specialized cytokines, and enzyme inhibitors identify in AmnioFix.  The following are some of the most notable regulatory

factors that help enhance healing:

  • Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF_B)
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
  • Platelet Derived Growth Factor A & B (PDGF AA 7 BB)

The recovery of the membrane does not affect the baby in the delivery process and is donated by healthy consenting mothers.  The donation process does not share the ethical concerns associated with the embryonic tissue.

AmnioFix allografts are procured and processed in the United States according to the standard and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
