Bone marrow is a spongy tissue found inside some bones in the body. The bone marrow is the production center of the blood cells (white, red, and platelets). A biopsy of this tissue is used to diagnose or stage certain types of blood cancers or diseases.
Biopsies are done in our office by one of our providers from the pelvic bone. The procedure takes less than 15 minutes to complete and is nearly painless with our technique.
