What is Bone Marrow Aspiration?
Bone Marrow Aspiration is a type of procedure that uses stem cells from the bone marrow. A bone marrow is the spongy tissue located in the bones, typically in the hip bone, ribs, and chest bone. This type of treatment requires the extraction of stem cells from the bone marrow andis then centrifuged to create a more concentrated form. The concentrated bone marrow contains mesenchymal stem cells that promote healing, new growth of tissues in the injured site, and growth factors that are responsible for healing the damaged tissue and generating new and healthy tissue.
This treatment is a short and minimally invasive procedure, has been shown to be effective in treating chronic pain, and is cost-effective in the long run. It is also a great alternative to taking addictive drugs, such as narcotics, for pain control. Additionally, since Bone Marrow Aspiration uses your own blood, there is no-risk for transmitted blood-injections and adverse reactions are rare.
Who is a candidate for Bone Marrow Aspiration?
Bone Marrow Aspiration is typically for people who have musculoskeletal injuries that have failed to heal despite traditional treatment options. Musculoskeletal injuries include arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and more.
