• One area at the back of each hip is numbed and a small marrow aspiration is taken through a needle. Blood is also taken from a vein in your arm. Does this hurt?
  • These samples are sent to our lab where we isolate the natural growth factors in your blood. We also isolate the fraction of the bone marrow that contains mesenchymal stem cells.
  • Over the next few days, you will be instructed as to how quickly you can resume normal activities. Bracing will often be used to help take weight off the area while allowing you to remain as active as possible.  The downtime is usually substantially less than any surgical procedures you may be considering.
