Perinatal tissue and growth factor injections are used to treat many foot and ankle conditions- and non foot or ankle conditions. This is an injection placed into an injured or painful area. The injection contains proteins, growth factors and anti-inflammatory agents. This is vital to an injury or painful area. The healing can help to speed up healing, or force the body into a healing state. In addition, it can trigger new blood vessels to form which will naturally increase healing times.

Where Does the Tissue and Growth Factors Come From?

This process is very safe and does not involve harm to the mother or baby. The tissue is donated after scheduled c-sections. In the past, this material was often discarded as medical waste, but after vast studies and trials, doctors became aware of how important it is. It is thoroughly screened, sterilized and inspected to ensure the health and safety of the recipient.
