Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Concentrate (BMC)

Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Concentrate (BMC)

Bone Marrow is considered one of the richest sources of stem cells in the body.  Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Concentrate (BMC) therapy is intended to deliver stem cells, growth factors and platelets to areas of injury.  It is designed to promote healing where bony or soft tissue damage has occurred.  BMC is also used to reduce pain and inflammation associated with chronic tendonitis and osteoarthritis.

BMC therapy is typically provided in the office setting under local anesthetic.  The bone marrow is harvested with the patient lying face down.  Using a needle placed into the back of the pelvic bone, the bone marrow is drawn out.  The aspirated bone marrow is then processed for several minutes where the stem cells, growth factors and platelets are concentrated.  The concentrated bone marrow aspirate is then delivered into the area of injury via injection.

Restrictions following BMC therapy are dependent on the treatment area.  Following injection, patients may experience a few days of soreness at the treatment site.  Typically, patients who receive joint injections for osteoarthritis are allowed to return to normal activity when soreness has subsided.    In the case of tendon and muscle injury, there is usually a period of rest that is required, with a gradual progression back to normal physical activity.

Patients are asked to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) for 2 weeks following PRP therapy as this may negatively affect outcomes.   The use of Tylenol or a prescribed pain reliever can be used to control discomfort when needed.

The side effects of BMC injections are extremely low. Because the patient’s own cells are being utilized, there is no risk of tissue rejection.
