Bone Marrow-Derived Stem Cells
Cutting-Edge Treatment for Musculoskeletal Disorders, Degenerative Arthritis, and More
Bone marrow is another source of stem cell therapy utilized at Stem Cell Centers of the Palm Beaches, as it has proven to be an effective treatment for a wide range of injuries, musculoskeletal disorders, degenerative arthritis, and peripheral arterial-related diseases.
Bone marrow is a sponge-like tissue inside your bones, containing hematopoietic (blood) stem cells and other growth factors that are needed for the healing process.
At Stem Cell Centers of the Palm Beaches, we harvest bone marrow cells from the iliac crest of your pelvis using a needle. The process is relatively painless and is performed as an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require any downtime.
After the bone marrow is collected, the sample is then placed in a laboratory centrifuge, which extracts the stem cells and growth factors used for treatment. These activated stem cells can differentiate into many types of tissue in your body and naturally trigger the healing process when injected into the affected or damaged area.
Bone marrow-derived stem cells have been used for treating various orthopedic conditions, including spinal fusions, for more than 30 years. In fact, they are the stem cells that are most frequently used in research, and they have been shown to provide healing relief for many conditions.
