One of the primary sources of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is our bone marrow. In the BMAC procedure, bone marrow is harvested from the pelvis and concentrated through a centrifugation process. The minimally invasive procedure is performed in clinic under local anesthetic and is largely pain-free. The final bone marrow concentrate, rich in mesenchymal stem cells, is injected back at the source of injury (ex. knee or hip joint) to expedite healing and repair while regenerating injured tissue. MSC therapy is the new frontier in sports medicine and orthopedics, largely for its great success in helping patient heal injuries and avoid surgery.
