Bone Morphogenetic Protein
What is Bone Morphogenetic Protein?
Bone morphogenetic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone. 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 morphogenetic 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.
BMP Reduces Your Recovery Time
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 morphogenetic protein.
Dr. Eckert, Dr. Harsha, Dr. Maxwell, Dr. Cofer or Dr. Johnson would be happy to discuss all grafting options with you at the time of consultation.
