When What Is A Stem Cell Injection?
Generally performed on an outpatient basis, the physician will remove bone marrow tissue from your pelvic bone. This tissue is where the stem cells will be harvested. Using a centrifuge, the stem cells are separated from the other bone marrow tissue. Using ultrasound as guidance, your physician will inject the cells into the injured disks in your back. The entire procedure generally takes around an hour.
