Bone Morphogenetic Protein: Midtown NYC
What is Bone Morphogenetic Protein?
- Bone morphogenic protein (BMP) is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. It is sometimes used with bone grafting procedures.
- During surgery, the BMP is soaked onto and binds with a collagen sponge.
- The sponge is then designed to resorb, or disappear, over time. As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenic protein stimulates the cells to produce new bone.
- The BMP also goes away once it has completed its task of jump starting the normal bone healing process.
Because 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.
