The surgeon collects bone marrow from the patient’s own body (autologous) and concentrates it to the optimal level while keeping all cell types, including stem cells and other cells that perform distinct functions in the body.
The Harvest SmartPrep system allows the surgeon to get the bone marrow from the patients hip with ease. It is always done with the patient is asleep and within 15 minutes of prepping the original solution the concentrate is ready to use. BMAC concentrates all key cells in their natural ratios and
successfully maintains cells in their natural plasma microenvironment. It produces reliable and consistent loads which can then be used in surgery to improve levels of healing, increase fusion rates and to recreate the natural environment.
BMAC is commonly used by Mr Kearns in treating osteochondral lesions (OCLs) or during major osteotomies.
