Amnion Membrane and Innovative Medicine Injections Q & A

  • Amnion is very popular currently.
  • Amnion is the inner layer of the placenta which is harvested at the time of C-section.  Amnion is derived from the mother, not the newborn child, so it has no ethical considerations.
  • The amniotic membrane contains numerous growth factors which can aid in the healing of multiple tissues including cartilage, tendon and ligament, nerve, and skin.
  • It is used in wound healing as well as repairing tendons because it has been shown to enhance healing and reduce scarring during the healing process.
