This may include the ability to just walk farther without getting so winded, or avoid dialysis, or avoiding amputation! Amniotic therapies with either fluid or membrane have been proven to assist with a LOT of conditions, and the Institute has several Board Certified, expert providers treating patients with compassionate care.

Existing traditional therapies have been great at reducing symptoms by acting as a proverbial “band aid”. Examples of these treatments have included injections with cortisone, oral narcotics or anti-inflammatory medications for pain. They don’t treat the root of the problem!

This is what makes regenerative medicine so revolutionary, is that it can truly modify conditions like arthritis, kidney disease, COPD and so much more.
