Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP2-Infuse)
Bone morphogenic protein is a revolutionary growth factor that induces stem cells in our body to form new bone. During surgery, the BMP is placed with a special collagen sponge. As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenic protein stimulates our cells to produce new bone. The BMP also goes away once it has completed its task of jump starting the bone healing process.
Benefits: NO DONOR SITE and Fantastic Healing.
Since there is no need to harvest bone from the patients’ hip for BMP, recipients were spared donor site pain. Complications from the graft harvest site are also eliminated with the use of bone morphogenic protein. Your doctor would be happy to discuss all grafting options with you at the time of consultation.
