A bone graft is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting bone tissue to a specific location in the body, typically to repair bone defects or injuries. Bone grafts are commonly used in orthopedic, dental, and plastic surgery procedures, and can help restore bone strength and function, as well as promote the growth of new bone tissue.
Bone grafts can be performed using a variety of techniques and materials, including autografts, allografts, and synthetic grafts. Autografts involve taking bone tissue from another part of the patient’s own body and transplanting it to the site of the injury or defect. Allografts use bone tissue from a donor, while synthetic grafts are made of materials such as calcium phosphate or hydroxyapatite.
Bone grafts can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including bone fractures, joint injuries, spinal cord injuries, and dental problems such as missing teeth or jawbone defects. They can also be used to support the placement of dental implants or to correct deformities caused by conditions such as scoliosis.
