Bone Marrow Concentrate

Bone marrow concentrate is a regenerative treatment option that uses stem cells found in bone marrow to heal injuries and conditions. Contact our Minnesota stem cell therapy physicians today to set up your appointment and see if you are a good candidate for bone marrow concentrate.

What is Bone Marrow Concentrate?

The bone marrow is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells in the body. The bone marrow can be aspirated from the iliac crest under fluoroscopic guidance and concentrated (BMAC) in a centrifuge to maximize the stem cell count. These mesenchymal stem cells can then be placed into a specific joint or a disc(s) to help promote the healing and regeneration of these areas. Bone marrow aspirated concentrate can be used to effectively treat:

  • Osteoarthritis in any joint
  • Degenerated disc
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Tendonitis and partial tendon tears

Mesenchymal Stem cells are unique cells in our body that have the ability to release signals that can stimulate the body to regenerate damaged or injured tissue. As we get older, we have a decreased ability to heal and regenerate our normal tissue.  This particular type of stem cell therapy when done appropriately with expert guidance can modulates your immune system, is extremely anti-inflammatory and has many positive effects in helping your body treat many conditions. Introducing these concentrated stem cells to a specific body part may help to counteract the effects of degeneration and help to heal arthritic joints, degenerated discs, and partially torn ligaments and tendons.

Mesenchymal stem cells are being investigated by many research facilities worldwide for their healing and regenerative properties.
