Bone Marrow Aspirate

What is it?

Bone marrow concentrate (BMC) is the soft, spongy substance that fills the inner cavities of the bones. Tiny cells found in the bone marrow hold blood and stem cells.

How does it help?

Stem cells can be used to heal tissue when infected. BMC also contain proteins, called cytokines and growth factors, that may help heal tissue.

How is it obtained?

Bone marrow aspirate is collected through a minimally invasive procedure done under local anesthesia that uses a needle to remove bone marrow from a large bone. The BMC in the aspirate is then extracted through a centrifuge.
