What Is Amniotic Membrane Allograft?

The amniotic membrane is the innermost layer of the placental membranes, and consists of two different cell populations: amnion epithelial cells, and amnion mesenchymal stem cells. When implanted, the amniotic membrane can provide anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Aside from these properties, the membrane can also serve as a scaffold and substrate for the migration, adhesion, and growth of resident cells and thus find widespread applications in regenerative medicine and cellular therapy.1.

Spark Health uses only Surgenex SurForce™ Amniotic Membrane Allograft for our regenerative medicine procedures.

Amniotic Mesenchymal Stem Cells

What Are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

Amniotic membrane tissue contain mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) which have been proven to offer great promise for cell-based therapies as these cells are capable of extensive self-renewal.

Placenta amnion membrane tissue has been found to be a rich and valuable source of mesenchymal stem cells  which is bio-equivalent to Bone Marrow-mesenchymal stem cells. 1.

Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent and exert anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. They can differentiate into multiple cell types and can be used to treat orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, meniscal, tendon, and ligament injuries.  1.

The use of MSCs in orthopedics is transitioning the practice in the field from predominately surgical replacement and reconstruction to bioregeneration and prevention. 

StemX Amniotic Membrane Tissue Injections

Spark Health exclusively uses SurForce® for our regenerative medicine procedures. SurForce contains a rich source of amniotic membrane that naturally reduces pain and inflammation while helping the healing process of damaged joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. It is the most concentrated injectable amniotic membrane on the market today.

Clean And SAFE

SurForce® is thoroughly tested for safety in clinical procedures. The donor serology test panel is the most extensive in the industry.

SURGENEX® conducts a 14-day bacterial/fungal test performed by a third party lab, to confirm our products are free of bacterial and fungal contaminants. These safety barriers verify that SurForce® is the cleanest and safest amniotic membrane tissue allograft product on the market

(Study data based on knee treatments. 1 year outcome is still under progress but early results are showing over 70% improvement in both mobility and pain relief! All results based on patient reported outcomes.)

The REAL Facts About Amniotic Tissue

The REAL Facts About Amniotic Tissue

  1. Myth 1. Amniotic Stem Cells are delivered in a powder form and the stem cells are dead. This statement is false – Surgenex™ Surfactor is Cryopreserved and shipped frozen with a short shelf life. The mesenchymal stem cells in amniotic membrane tissue are present and alive. (Source: How do you determine live stem cells? Click Here), (Source: Surgenex Cell Viability Study. Click Here), (Source: Surgenex wins court case. Click here)
  2. Myth 2. Amniotic membrane tissue has fewer stem cells than bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. False – Amniotic membrane tissues has been found to be a rich and valuable source of mesenchymal stem cells – bio equivalent to bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. (Source: 10.3390/cells1041061)
  3. Myth 3. Amniotic fluid injections are mostly composed of baby urine. That statement is true. StemX uses only amniotic membrane tissue injections from Surgenex. We do not use amniotic fluid injections.

The FACTS On Regenerative Medicine Vs. Surgery

Invasive Or Non Invasive?

Have you been diagnosed with bone on bone osteoarthritis? Here are 2 of the major treatment options available. One is invasive and one non-invasive.

Testimonials

It’s been 5 and a half months. I’m doing well. My knees are pain free, the swelling is gone in both knees. There’s still a little fluid in the left knee, but that’ll go away with time. The spacing of the bones are fine and the cartilage is looking good. I’m doing well, I’m working out at the gym three days a week and my trainer is slowly getting me back into lower body exercises to accommodate the buildup of strength in my legs.

My Knees Are Pain Free

I Am Looking Forward To Getting My Life Back

X-rays and a MRI showed me to be bone-on-bone, and I had received a steroid injection – without any relief. It was difficult to walk up and down stairs and walk on uneven ground. Within 6 weeks, a sonogram showed space between the leg bones and it was more comfortable for me to walk and do stairs. I returned almost 8 months later for a follow-up – another sonogram showed still more space.

I am very happy that I made the decision

Dr. Kasendorf is absolutely incredible. After reviewing my case, he explained to me what the issues were and how stem cell treatments are helpful. Despite already reviewing my x-rays, he performed a diagnostic ultrasound at no extra charge! I am pleased to write that I am completely better (only 3 months after injection). I am thrilled that I was able to avoid surgery. Thank you Dr. Kasendorf and staff.
