Stem Cell Therapy Becomes More Widely Available



Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate | ATS

ABC News

Posted: Jun 23, 2013


Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) makes use of a patient’s own stem cells to begin innovative treatment. Stem cells have the ability to replicate themselves or differentiate into a variety of tissue types. When injury occurs, however, the number of stem cells needed for tissue regeneration may be inadequate.

With BMAC, the physician aspirates (removes by suction) a small amount of the patient’s bone marrow. The marrow is then placed in a centrifuge, which extracts a concentrated amount of stem cells. This concentrate is injected into the injured joint to start treatment of damaged tissue. Dr. Kripsak has been providing BMAC, which is a same-day procedure, to patients since 2009.
