Uncontrolled foot or ankle pain, problematic tendon and joint injuries, wounds that won't heal. Your foot or ankle surgery has failed or, surgery isn't an option.
You have persistent pain in the feet or ankles. Your condition is not responding well to conservative care. Rest, ice, elevation, immobilization, over the counter anti-inflammatories, new shoes and inserts - after eight weeks of trying it all you're still in pain. Your aching feet are interfering with your ability to do your job and take care of your family. The throbbing in your ankle is keeping you from doing all of the leisure activities you used to enjoy.
Before considering surgery, talk with our board certified foot and ankle surgeons about injectable allograft treatment.
Many of our patients are responding well human amnion/chorion injection. This in-office procedure speeds up your body's own natural process to regenerate and heal damage to foot and ankle joints, bone, skin, tendon or ligaments.
Amniotic membrane is a unique material and its composition contains collagen types I,III, IV, V and VII. It is composed of structural extracellular matrix (ECM), that also contains specialized proteins fibronectin, laminins, proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. In addition, amniotic membrane contains essential, active, healing growth factors such as epidermal growth factor (EGF), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b), fibroblast growth factor (FGF), and platelet derived growth factor (PDGF).
Allograft deliver a source of multipotent amnion cells and growth factors that stimulate your body's own repair mechanisms regenerating or facilitating the repair of cells damaged by disease, genetics, injury or aging.
Texas Foot Surgeons have success providing relief for chronic pain patients with injectable allograft treatment.
