Q: What are the new bone marrow biopsy needles and procedures used to minimize pain?
A: Recently, specimen capturing bone marrow biopsy needles have been introduced to minimize the pain resulting from manipulations of the bone marrow needle and to help your doctor ensure recovery of adequate specimens.
The SNARECOILTM bone marrow biopsy needle is a specimen capturing needle that incorporates a tiny internal snare mechanism that coils around the tip of the specimen after it has entered the needle and thereby captures it.
This mechanism eliminates the need to significantly move the needle after it has been advanced into the bone marrow tissue to recover the specimen. This advantage is relevant not only for the patient who may require a single bone marrow biopsy for diagnosis but especially for those patients with blood cancers such as leukemia or lymphoma, who may require multiple procedures to evaluate the efficacy of their treatments.

In 2002 I had marrow removed for anterior spinal fusion surgery. As I've been getting older, pain has been getting stronger from the removal site. Lower back hip area. I don't understand how that could be. I'm 61yro now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Doctor has suggested "Bone Marrow test" for my wife due to Hb being less than 5.5 , Which is nearest place for me to take test from Sedam, Gulbarga, Karnataka. Where can I take this test ? How much time is required
