Dr. Jarnagin is the first physician in the country who has successfully used and experienced the healing power of amniotic fluid for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain and is excited to offer this revolutionary new treatment to patients suffering from debilitating pudendal neuralgia. This treatment has been used on 150 patients to date but most them (67%) have experienced complete to near complete resolution of their pain and 90% have experienced complete to moderate pain relief. This study opens a new therapeutic option that is effective in most qualifying chronic pelvic pain patients.
The donated human placental tissue is recovered by a non-profit organ procurement agency, after informed consent screening for healthy mothers scheduled for elective Caesarian. The donors consent to the collection of this tissue, provided that its collection does not cause any harm to their infants. Fetal tissue is never used. The women donors are between 18 and 35 years old, are healthy and have no prior use of medication or other chemical substances, and must test negative for all potentially communicable conditions.
The amazing ability of amniotic fluid and membrane to repair and heal the human body has been well documented for 100 years and is playing an important role in the exciting and rapidly growing field of regenerative medicine. Tissue regeneration is helped by the mix of cells, electrolytes, growth factors, carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, enzymes and hormones present in the amniotic fluid. These components work together at the site of injury so new cells can form, and the injured tissue can be repaired, remodeled and rebuilt back to its normal state. The risk of a graft host reaction is negligible and none have ever been reported.
