What is Stem Cell Therapy?
BMA (bone marrow aspirate) is extracted from your bone marrow using a minimally invasive procedure known as Stem Cell Therapy. The BMA, which contains a mix of stem cells that produce red blood cells (hematopoietic), white blood cells and tissue (mesenchymal stem cells), is then injected in the affected area. BMA is most often extracted with a small needle from the hip or pelvis area.
The BMA used in Stem Cell Therapy can be safely and effectively transplanted in a quick minimally invasive outpatient procedure in about an hour. Since BMA comes from your body it is an autologous procedure meaning that it is derived from your own body so there is no risk of rejection. After receiving Stem Cell Therapy, it is recommended to refrain from strenuous physical activity for the first 30 days. However, normal day-to-day activities may begin after two days of rest and recovery. Your physician may instruct you with further restrictions based on your specific injury and procedure.
How many sessions does it take?
One session. It can repeated in the future for the same treatment area or other parts of the body if needed.
What results can i expect from stem cell therapy?
