Can stem cells heal broken bones?
Can bone marrow aspirate stem cell injections be used to heal fractures?
A. X-ray of a foot of a 57 year old female with a comminuted 5th phalange (pinky toe) fracture sustained 8 months prior with no healing seen on x-ray.
B. X-ray of same patient, 8 weeks post bone marrow aspirate stem cell injection under US guidance by Dr. Silberman at New Jersey Sports Medicine demonstrating healing on x-ray with callous and bony remodeling seen.
