What is Bone Marrow (BM)?
Bone marrow is a semi-solid tissue found within the spongy or cancellous portions of bones. The bone marrow contains the different types of cells (stem cells) that give rise to the red cells, white blood cells, and platelets found in our blood.
What is bone marrow aspiration (BMA)?
BMA is a procedure that involves taking a small portion of the BM, mainly from the iliac crest, that is a common source for harvesting mesenchymal stem cells, other progenitor cells, and associated cytokine/growth factors, often performed with different needles.
What is bone marrow concentration (BMC)?
BMC is a process where a small portion of the bone marrow aspirated is processed in a centrifuge to produce a concentrate with your body’s stem cells, platelets and growth factors. The concentrate will be collected into a sterile syringe and injected into the targeted body area being treated.
