The bone marrow has a fluid portion and a more solid portion. Bone marrow aspiration is done by an orthopedist, by making a small incision, after which a hollow needle is inserted through the bone and into the bone marrow.
Using a syringe attached to the needle, an orthopedic doctor will withdraw a sample of the liquid portion of the marrow called aspirate. This aspirate contains stem cells that can help the healing of some bone and joint conditions.
Mesenchymal stem cells are used for early grade avascular necrosis of the femoral head and also for cartilage lesions in the knee and ankle. Stem cells are also used to aid fracture healing in non union cases.
