Caption

Harvesting of bone. Surgeon's gloved hand uses a steel instrument to harvest bone from the head of the femur (thigh-bone) of a patient. The living bone is scraped to obtain fragments of bone, and bone marrow may also be taken. This procedure may be conducted to test the bone for disease, such as arthritis. Fragments of bone may be stored in a bone bank, or used for immediate bone grafting to repair bone damage in another part of the body. Although this is not a typical method of removing bone marrow, the marrow may also be used in a bone marrow transplant.
