Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate

 

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) is a non-surgical Regenerative Procedure (Stem Cell Therapy) that helps accelerate healing in patients who suffer from orthopedic conditions, especially osteoarthritis and cartilage injuries.   BMAC is a concentrate of regenerative stem cells obtained from a patient’s own bone marrow, and like PRP, utilizes the body’s intrinsic healing potential.  With the appropriate expertise this procedure can be done with minimal discomfort.  There is basic science and a case series research that demonstrates the potential effectiveness of these treatments in patients suffering from arthritis of various joints, especially the knee joint.

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate

 

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (Stem Cell Therapy) is best for patient's with moderate to severe orthopedic injuries, since the bone marrow contains a rich reservoir of regenerative cells.  When injury occurs, there are usually inadequate supplies of regenerative cells needed to repair the body.  These regenerative cells taken from the bone marrow can actually replicate themselves into various types of tissue.  This in turn gives the patient a robust super concentrated mixture of regenerative cells that have very accelerated healing abilities that repair and aid in growth in the damaged area.

How it's Done

 

The patient's regenerative cells (Stem Cells) from their bone marrow is removed by the physician  (with usually a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort) and is put into a centrifuge to generate a highly concentrated mixture (which we test/count).  This will then be then injected into the injured area on the same day.  Post-injection soreness at the injured area that was injected can result, but usually resolves in a few days.  As always, it's important to stay away from all Anti-Inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen, Naproxen and Aspirin since they will interfere with the healing process started by the post-injection inflammation.
