Bone Morphogenetic Protein
Bone morphogenetic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in your body to form new cartilage and bone. During surgery, the BMP is soaked onto and them binds with a collagen sponge. The sponge is 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.
Since there is no need to harvest bone for BMP, you will not have donor site pain. The use of BMP also eliminates complications from the bone graft harvest site.
Dr. Noraian would be happy to discuss all grafting options with you at the time of consultation.
