FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS BMA THERAPY?
BMA therapy is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that Dr Demesmin performs in the office. Bone marrow aspirate is directly obtained from a bone called the iliac crest (hip). Bone marrow houses stem cells which can form new cells such as bone, cartilage and muscle. A special needle is used to gather the bone marrow which is able to collect a high concentration of stem cells from your marrow. The newly concentrated stem cells are then injected into the problematic area to stimulate cell regeneration.
I HAVE HEARD OF CORTISONE INJECTIONS IS IT THE SAME THING?
Studies have shown that Cortisone injections may actually weaken tissue. Cortisone shots may provide temporary pain relief but do not promote long-term healing. Bone Marrow Stem Cell Therapy heals and strengthens these tendons and ligaments.
DOES INSURANCE PAY FOR INJECTIONS?
No. Despite several publications and peer reviewed journal’s showing the efficacy of BMA, it is not covered by insurance at this time.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO “WORK”?
Most patients noticed some level of improvement within 2-6 six weeks or sooner. You can expect a decrease in pain and an increase in strength and stability. Most patients require only a single injection of BMA.
