"When my hope was dashed by years of severe pain and misdiagnosis and mistreatment, by drs in San Francisco, I met Dr Williams. He diagnosed my problem correctly based on a very inexpensive test and told me what I needed to do and where to go to learn about what I needed to do to get out of pain and back into the world. I’m working sure and steady towards recovery and not there yet but if it weren’t for Dr Williams I don’t know where I would be. I wish that every person in need would meet a Dr like Dr Williams. He is kind and he made the difference for me. His staff are nice and easy to work with."- L.M. / Facebook / Mar 10, 2021
"Great experience across the board! Dr Williams takes the time to listen and explain your situation while giving you the best course of action to treat your condition. Staff & office are top notch and very organized. Highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a safe and effective non-surgical procedure to treat their injuries."- D.S. / Google / Sep 01, 2020
"IO Atlanta is an exceptional experience. Few doctors have the time to talk to you about your condition, answer ALL your questions (and your spouse's questions too), go over your imagery, and explain all the options with real world results. Not only am I a patient, but my wife is also working with Doc Williams to solve a problem she's had for 20+ years. I can't say enough good things about the staff and how everyone is concerned about your individual outcomes. They truly care, and the work they do is cutting edge. I am very glad I have taken this route over conventional surgery and bought more time without permanently changing my body in irreversible ways. The treatment they offer does things just not possible with conventional orthopedic surgery, and using your own body's ability to heal itself by just creating a bit of encouragement is the wave of the future. I have a big Thank You to Doctor Williams and his entire staff at IO Atlanta."- L. / Google / Aug 26, 2020

A variety of conditions can be treated with an amniotic membrane. In orthopedic medicine, it is typically used to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis, tendinitis, or other conditions that cause chronic pain. In most cases, amniotic membrane treatments are utilized when other procedures have failed to alleviate your symptoms or provide optimal results. Amniotic membrane contains an array of growth factors, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for restorative results.
Amniotic Membrane Treatment
Amniotic membrane can be delivered as a graft or amniotic fluid can be injected into the area being treated. During your thorough consultation, Dr. Williams will evaluate your current symptoms and condition, as well as your past medical history to determine if you could benefit from a human amniotic membrane graft or amniotic fluid injections. For some patients, a series of injections may be required to achieve optimal, long-term results. Dr. Williams will be able to fully explain all of your treatment options and formulate an ideal plan specifically for you and your needs.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, Dr. Williams will discuss with you any aftercare instructions and let you know when you can expect results.
