Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate is derived from the patient’s own bone marrow, which is a rich source of stem cells, growth and healing factors. When injected back into an area of injury, BMAC contributes significantly to the regenerative process. Unlike other cells of the body, bone marrow cells are “undifferentiated” which means they have the ability to replicate themselves into a variety of tissue types. When injury occurs, the usual number of regenerative cells needed for tissue regeneration is often inadequate. With BMAC, the concentrate of regenerative cells provides a more robust healing of the damaged tissue and aids in the growth and repair by accelerating the body’s natural healing mechanism. BMAC has been shown to reduce swelling, relieve pain, and enhance healing of the cartilage and bone.
