Bone Marrow Concentrate Therapy

What is Bone Marrow Concentrate Therapy?​

Bone marrow concentrate therapy, also known as bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), harvests stem cells from your body’s own marrow to activate tissue regrowth and promote lasting relief from chronic orthopedic pain.
The Hudson Medical team has years of experience using this modality to treat degenerative joint and spinal conditions. We use the most clinically-advanced protocols to ensure our BMAC therapy is of the highest quality.

How Does BMAC Activate Healing?

This therapy administers autologous cells collected from a patient’s own bone marrow and re-injected into the injury site to  boost natural repair processes following an injury or the onset of chronic degeneration.
Specifically, BMAC relies on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which have the unique ability to catalyze multiple healing pathways.  MSCs release growth factors and cytokines to further the healing process. Additionally, MSCs stimulate the production of new cells and prevent existing cells from dying off—functions that are integral to the healing process.
MSCs release growth factors that contribute to the rehabilitation of damaged tissue. The various growth factors contained in MSCs facilitate a range of healing functions, including prompting regeneration of cartilage and bone, attracting stem cells to injured tissue, and forming new blood vessels to support growing tissue.
MSCs also secrete cytokines, which are small proteins that facilitate cellular communication. Cytokines can either promote or inhibit inflammation, and MSCs actually release both pro and anti-inflammatory cytokines. The anti-inflammatory cytokines stop cartilage inflammation and destruction, and the pro-inflammatory cytokines contribute to tissue regeneration.

What Can Bone Marrow Concentrate Treat?

BMAC products can be injected directly at the site of injury or injected intraosseously to stimulate cartilage growth.
Osteoarthritis results in the deterioration of cartilage around joints, resulting in inflammation, pain, and mobility issues. BMAC may offset the damage of osteoarthritis by releasing growth factors and cytokines to regenerate tissue and repair damaged cartilage.
Tendon Injuries occur when tendons begin to deteriorate, leading to pain, swelling, and loss of mobility. The MSCs, growth factors, and cytokines contained in BMAC are able to mitigate tendon damage by encouraging tissue repair and regrowth
Chronic back pain stems from a variety of factors, including degenerative vertebrae and intervertebral discs. BMAC therapy has been shown to halt future disc degeneration, reduce overall pain and improve mobility. Studies suggest that BMAC patients take less opioids for pain management and are able to avoid surgery during their two and three-year follow-up visits.
  • Less Invasive than Surgery
  • Mobility Improvement
  • Faster Return to Activities

Because BMAC is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, the recovery period is typically less intense than post-surgery recovery.

Bone marrow concentrate may improve range of motion and overall mobility.

Some patients can resume normal activities after 3 weeks, although this timeline may vary from patient to patient.

What are the Benefits?​

Because BMAC is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, patients typically do not have to undergo intense rehabilitation.

Clinical Process

BMAC products are injected directly at the site of injury or can be injected intraosseously to stimulate cartilage growth.


A local anesthetic is applied to ensure comfort throughout the BMAC process.

The overall procedure is relatively painless.


Extraction begins. The autologous bone marrow is most commonly extracted from the patient’s pelvis.

Bone marrow may also be extracted from other areas.


After the extraction, the marrow is harvested in a centrifuge.

The centrifuge is designed to spin at a high speed in order to separate the cells.


Once the cells have been extracted, they are injected directly into the injury site or intraosseously. The injection process is highly technical.

Our physicians use advanced imaging technology to pinpoint the exact injection location.
