AmnioFix Sports Med 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 Sports Med contains natural factors, called growth factors, for homologous use to modulate inflammation, reduce scar tissue formation, and enhance healing.
What are growth factors?
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 Sports Med contains some of the most important growth factors needed for healing.
Is AmnioFix Sports Med Right for Me?
You and your doctor may consider AmnioFix Sports Med an option if:
- You have been diagnosed with an injury resulting in inflammation
- Conservative treatment such as anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, and bracing have not provided symptomatic relief of inflammation
- You want a non-steroidal option or have reached your limit of steroid injections
All tissue donors are tested similarly to testing done for donated blood. The amniotic membrane then undergoes a validated proprietary process to thoroughly cleanse and preserve the tissue, called the PURION process. The steps of the PURION process include: cleansing the tissue, drying the tissue and sterilization. AmnioFix allografts are procured and processed in the United States according to the standards and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United Stated Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
