Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) is a common stem cell procedure performed at Texas Partners Healthcare Group. It is the first and only system that allows us to harvest cells in under 5 minutes, and it does not require centrifugation like other procedures. BMA relies on a specific style of needle different than other bone marrow retrieval procedures, which means we are able to recover the most cells while minimizing peripheral blood infiltration. BMA uses a smaller gauge needle than traditional bone marrow retrieval processes, in addition, this style of needle is able to recover the most cells while minimizing peripheral blood infiltration.

The body is a strong and complex network of bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons that work together to keep you pain-free and healthy. When injury or illness impacts any of these parts, it can worsen your overall well-being. In recent years, we have discovered that stem cell therapy can reduce pain and accelerate a patient’s recovery process. An injection of stem cells retrieved from your bone marrow is one of the most effective forms of therapy that we offer.

Who can Benefit from Bone Marrow Stem Cells?

We offer a wide range of procedures and services for individuals living in pain. BMA is one of the regenerative medicine therapies that we use to help those suffering from acute or chronic pain. We will start by diagnosing your pain and find what the source of the problem is. At this point, our knowledgeable team of specialists will determine if you are a good candidate for BMA. Some of the most common conditions we treat with BMA include:

  • Spinal Injuries:

    Neck pain, mid or lower back pain, pain in the sacroiliac (SI) joints

  • Joint Injuries:

    Knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, ankles, wrists, fingers, and toes

  • Soft Tissue Injuries:

    elbow, golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, and rotator cuff injuries

There are many reasons why BMA stem cells are such an effective form of therapy. They are found in abundant quantities, which can be renewed through cell division, have the potential to regenerate tissue, bone or cartilage, and can be safely and effectively transplanted. The BMA stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure, and there is no risk of rejection because the cells are autologous (meaning they are harvested from the same person).


Benefits of BMA

There are many great benefits of BMA stem cell therapy. One of the top things to keep in mind is that there are literally millions of stem cells in our bodies that are just waiting to be harvested and used to heal injured or painful parts of the body. This specific procedure is very sterile and is performed in a short amount of time. Some of the other top benefits include:

  • No risk of rejection because the patient’s own cells are used.
  • Stem cells harvested from bone marrow can be used in various applications.
  • Bone marrow stem cells are potent and highly active, providing patients with relief sooner than later.
  • It’s an outpatient procedure that is very simple.
