What is Bone Marrow Aspiration?

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is made from fluid taken from bone marrow. The bone marrow aspirate contains cells that can help the healing of some bone and joint conditions. Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is obtained with a minimally invasive procedure that avoids the risks of an open bone graft procedure.

Bone marrow aspirate can be used to help with bone healing, cartilage repair, and new blood vessel growth. Using bone marrow aspirate may treat delayed union or nonunion of bone fractures, cartilage defects, osteonecrosis, chronic tendon problems, or chronic wounds.
