Regenerative Medicine and Surgery with “Birth Tissue”
Dr. Karon is the first one in her specialty to use the “birth tissue” in forms of amniotic fluid, umbilical cord and placental membranes. As a urogynecologist and a second busiest robotic surgeon in Kentucky, she uses it to complement her pelvic prolapse surgery without mesh. Other applications are being developed as she works in concert with scientists and PHDs. To dates the FDA has had no reported complications from the use of native “birth tissue”. Even ancient Egyptians used placentas for healing!
