Bone Marrow Concentrate

Disclaimer: Results and claims are not typical or meant to represent your results. Risks exist for any interventional procedures including all regenerative medicine treatments which include prolotherapy, A2M, bone marrow, growth factor injections, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Long-term side effects of regenerative medicine are unknown and short-term problems have emerged. Complications are uncommon but these do include the possibility of infection, bleeding, no help from the procedure, worsening pain, and remotely stroke and death.

Bone marrow concentrate is a regenerative treatment option that uses growth factors from your own bone marrow, which may help assist your body’s ability to heal injuries and orthopedic conditions. Contact our Minnesota physicians today to set up your appointment and see if you are a good candidate for this non-surgical treatment.

What is Bone Marrow Concentrate?

Bone marrow aspiration is a convenient way to harvest large amounts of natural growth factors. The bone marrow can be aspirated from the iliac crest under fluoroscopic guidance and concentrated (BMAC) in a centrifuge to maximize the cell count. These cells can then be placed into a specific joint or a disc(s), with the goal of helping to reduce pain in these areas. Bone marrow concentrate may be used for:

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