What is bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC)?

 

    • The “gold standard” of regenerative stem cell therapy is using the patient’s own cells also known as “autologous cells” to treat a patient’s injured tissue. Since the stem cells used are your own, your body will naturally adapt and use the cells efficiently to repair damaged tissue.
    • Stem cells are the basis of all tissues and organs in the body. These cells can regenerate, and they can multiply cells of the same kind. They can then develop into mature cells as part of the normal physiological process. Stem cells have been most used in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. These specific cells are “mesenchymal stem cells” and have been defined as cells that have potential to differentiate into various musculoskeletal tissues. These cells are known to repair bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, and ligaments.

The science, how does it work?

   There are three main propositioned mechanisms of action for tissue repair. These properties make them ideal for the treatment of arthritis, tendon, muscle, and ligament injuries.

Cellular communication: the cell produces signal to nearby cells which promotes changes and can alter the behavior of the cells in the injected area.

Engraftment: when the body accepts the transplanted cells and begins to produce new cells.

Immune system activation: changes in the body’s immune system can activate essential growth factors to facilitate tissue repair while also suppressing non favorable inflammatory processes.

    • The current research supports that mesenchymal stem cells promote cellular growth and enhance immunomodulatory factors that activate and manage the body’s distinctive healing response.
    •  The microenvironment of a joint, tendon, or any soft tissue will respond to stem cells. Meaningful change is based on a signaling response to alter the disease and/or heal the injury during early stages of disease such as arthritis or tendinitis for example. During later stages of a musculoskeletal disease like end-stage arthritis or complete/retracted tendon tears, stem cells may only help with pain and inflammation but will not restore joint space, grow cartilage, or repair the already extensively damaged tissue.

What to expect after the procedure?

                • You get to go home the same day
                • The injection site maybe sore for a few days and up to 1 week at most.
                • Both procedures take 30-60 minutes, and you go home the day of the procedure. Complete healing of bruising, swelling, and soreness will take about 1- 2 weeks.
                • Typical follow up will be in 4-6 weeks or as needed basis but you may return at any time for any questions or needs
