FloGraft injections are commonly used for joint pain, partial thickness tendon tears, inflammatory joint effusion, sprains, strains, and chronic non-healing wounds. The hyaluronic acid in the amniotic fluid, along with the growth factors, stimulates wound healing, bone and tendon repairs, as well as improves nerve function. Surgeons often times will use FloGraft as a biologic augmentation, or a final step in surgeries to help decrease scar formation and drive tissue regeneration.
All FloGraft donors go through a multitude of blood tests and screenings to ensure safety of all patients involved. The harvested amniotic fluid, delivered to Iowa Ortho in a cryopreserved state, contains a rich environment of native nutrients, electrolytes, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, enzymes, and hormones and is administered to patients via injection either in the office or as a part of another surgical procedure.
