What are bone marrow derived stem cell
Bone Marrow Aspirate is one of the most popular and effective regenerative orthopedic treatments available. In the procedure, bone marrow is extracted from your own body, generally from the hip, and centrifuged to produce a concentrated mix of stem cells, growth factors, white blood cells, and platelets, all valuable components of promoting the body’s ability to repair itself. Stem cells are particularly valuable because of their ability to develop into muscle, bone, or tissue, and to recruit additional cells to the site of injury.
Bone Marrow Aspirate Vs. Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate
Bone Marrow Aspirate is done by aspirating the bone marrow in which stem cells are selected out using a needle. Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate takes it a step further by spinning the bone marrow down in a centrifuge, resulting in a larger volume of stem cells.
