BMAC is a regenerative therapy procedure where patient’s bone marrow cells are extracted and utilized to boost the healing process of a surgically operated bone. This procedure has proven its benefits in a number of common chronic orthopaedic conditions like osteoarthritis, and other bone and cartilage injuries. BMAC typically provides a substantial supply of growth cells to initiate healing in areas that lack natural blood supply and other factors responsible for healing.
• The bone marrow extraction is performed as an outpatient procedure where the patient is induced with local anaesthesia, and a small volume of the patient’s bone marrow is extracted from their pelvic bone.
• The extract marrow is then subjected to a centrifuge system for producing concentrated unique stem cells.
• These stem cells will then be injected into the patient’s damaged/operated tissues.
• This procedure requires minimal resting time, and you may feel sore at the site of the injection for not more than two or three days.
• You’ll have to strictly avoid using any anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or aspirin for at least two weeks as they can potentially hamper the articulated healing process.
• You’ll experience pain for only for a short duration of time.
• It is suggested that you follow up this BMAC procedure with a short period of physical therapy to accelerate recovery.
