Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA)


 

Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA)

  • Bone marrow is soft, spongy tissue found in the center of your bones. The bone marrow is where our body produces red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and other components of plasma. Since this is the production site for these cells, immature forms of these cells called stem cells will be located in the bone marrow.
  • Benefits of BMA include less side effects compared to surgery, these are naturally occurring cells in your own body, potential to speed up healing, minimally invasive, and minimal to no down time.
  • While the extraction of BMA only takes several minutes, the entire process can commonly take 1 hour to perform. The BMA cells are capable of repairing damaged tissue, reducing pain, and improving overall function.
  • BMA procedures are safe when performed by a trained professional in a sterile environment. Complications can include bleeding and bruising and infection. Most individuals will need to take it easy for up to one week after the procedure.
