Bone Marrow Biopsy

Bone marrow biopsy and aspiration are procedures to collect and examine the spongy tissue inside some of your larger bones where blood cells are produced.

These procedures can be used to help diagnose and monitor various blood diseases, including anemia, leukemia, pancytopenia, multiple myeloma, and myelofibrosis.

During a bone marrow biopsy/aspiration, your doctor inserts a needle into your hip bone to withdraw a sample of the solid and fluid portions of the bone marrow.

The fluid aspirate and solid marrow are examined separately and may help the doctor obtain a diagnosis quickly so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.

 

Skilled.  Personal.  Committed.
