Simple and painless, stem cell therapy is a breakthrough regenerative medicine treatment that uses the healing properties of stem cells provided by human amniotic membrane supplied in either a powder or liquid form. The formula used at Sandia Foot and Ankle is comprised of more than 50 natural growth factors that can aid in controlling inflammation, reducing scar tissue, and accelerating healing. Growth factors are proteins that the body make to recruit cells to an injured site and help restore damaged tissue.
The stem cell formulation used at Sandia Foot and Ankle is derived from the amniotic membrane tissue of healthy, pe-screened women undergoing scheduled Caesarean sections. The women are all healthy and consenting donors.
The Stem cells are injected into the injured soft tissue or tendon. The amount and number of injections required, is determined by how you respond to your initial injection. When the stem cell formula is injected into the injured area of your foot or ankle, it controls inflammation, reduces scar tissue, and promotes rapid healing.
Stem cell therapy is a major game-changer in remedying a wide array of foot and ankle conditions, especially when traditional, first-line approaches, such as splints, orthotics, over-the-counter pain relievers and stretching, have not been effective. Some of the conditions that Dr. Pacheco uses stem cells to treat are:
