Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell
What are Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells?
Bone marrow derived stem cells (BMCs) are stem cells that are found in bone marrow, or the soft tissue inside your bones that create blood cells. Bone marrow has historically been a rich source of not only hematopoietic stem cells, but mesenchymal stem cells as well. These types of stem cells can differentiate into different types of blood cells (hematopoietic cells) and cells present in tissues like bone, cartilage, muscles, and fat (mesenchymal cells). These cells can have many benefits in treating conditions that affect certain areas of the body that are experiencing factors like degeneration, inflammation, and injury, among others. This is because MSCs provide the ability (through noninvasive extraction and processing) to help promote healing, regeneration, and repair of target tissues.
How are Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells Collected?
Bone marrow aspiration, which may seem like a very painful procedure, is completed in a short period of time with little to no discomfort. This procedure produces a small sample of your own bone marrow tissue which can be activated and made ready for injection on the same day. Often, bone marrow derived stem cells can be combined with adipose derived stem cells for increased efficacy. During a consultation, our stem cell experts can ensure you know the specifics of your bone marrow stem cell treatment.
What Can I Expect During This Process?
Our stem cell treatments are performed within the same day at our state-of-the-art, accredited ambulatory facility. During the extraction process, our expert, board certified providers can ensure that you’re comfortable and relaxed. We use image-guided techniques and technology at this step to ensure that your procedure is quick, efficient, and successful. After the cells are collected and activated, they can either be suspended in platelet-rich plasma derived from your own blood sample, or applied alone to the affected area. After the procedure, you can return home the same day with instructions for a quick and easy recovery.
What Happens After Injection?
After the stem cells are injected into the treatment area through various routes of administration, the cells begin to differentiate into the specific cells and tissues needed to repair and heal your body. Although your expert provider can give you the best idea of what to expect, your timeframe after treatment will be unique to you, since everyone’s body heals at different rates. During this time, you might benefit from platelet-rich plasma treatments to aid this process.
What are the Benefits of Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells?
Bone marrow derived stem cells can be very beneficial for certain conditions that affect the musculoskeletal, autoimmune, and metabolic systems. Bone marrow was one of the first sources of mesenchymal stem cells discovered, meaning they have a long and documented history of use in regenerative medicine. Additionally, they can be combined with adipose derived stem cells for further effectiveness in certain treatments. Your experienced stem cell provider can discuss these specific conditions in detail.
