Stem Cell Techniques
Did you know that two doctors can draw the same amount of bone marrow from the same individual, and one can get 100 times higher number of stem cells than the other?
Multiple studies show that technique matters, and that higher concentrations of stem cells can be achieved with a meticulous and evidence-based technique. The best study, which Dr. Khadavi often refers to in his lectures, was by Dr. Philippe Hernagou, who found that drawing a small volume of bone marrow, such as 1 mL, from multiple areas within the bone marrow and at multiple sites will yield much higher stem cell counts than a single site. Dr. Khadavi avidly utilizes and teaches the highest-yielding, most evidence-based techniques so that his patients can be certain they will have the best possible outcomes from his bone marrow treatments.
