Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Concentrate (BMAC) is a component of your bone marrow that contains growth factors and anti-inflammatory proteins which have been shown to promote bone and soft tissue healing as well as reduce symptoms of pain related to injuries, tendinitis and arthritis.
BMAC may be recommended typically for patients that have failed other conservative therapies including physical therapy, medications, rest, and other injections. It is also a good option for those that are not candidates for surgery or prefer to avoid elective surgery.
Conditions that may be treated include: Osteoarthritis of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot, rotator cuff tears, ligament tears including tears of the UCL in the elbow of throwing athletes, hip labral tears, articular Cartilage injuries, advanced tendon injuries and high-grade tendon injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle and foot and muscle strains or tears.
The best treatment option for your specific injury will be determined after a thorough office examination. If you are tired of your pain, call today for an appointment to see if you are a candidate for this non-surgical treatment.
