What is Bone Marrow?
Bone marrow is tissue that is found in the center of large bones. It is the part of the body where new blood cells are produced. In fact, two types of stem cells are produced within the bone marrow. The first kind, hemopoietic stem cells, produce blood cells. The second type of stem cells, stromal, produce fat, cartilage, and bone. Even more, there are two types of bone marrow found in the large bones in your body. Red bone marrow produces red blood cells, platelets, and most white blood cells. Yellow bone marrow produces fat cells.
Bone marrow is found in several different sets of bones in your body. Once the stem cells are harvested from these bones, they can be used to treat a variety of illnesses and conditions. The harvesting process is minimally invasive in nature.
