What is Demineralized Bone Matrix?

A demineralized bone matrix is an allograft or xenograft bone that has been decalcified as a way to create a product of collagen and growth factors. The sole purpose of a demineralized bone matrix is to help treat damaged bones, and it can be formulated from animal or human sources. At Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta, Dr. Christopher Williams utilizes donor demineralized bone matrix as a way to promote healing and induce bone formation. As a bone graft substitute or extender, a demineralized bone matrix can treat bone with the help of restorative bone growth factors. To learn more about this innovative treatment option, we invite you to contact our Atlanta, GA facility to schedule an initial consultation. Dr. Williams will evaluate your symptoms and conditions before creating a treatment plan specifically for you and your needs.


Patients who are in need of a bone graft but do not have the capability to harvest it from another area of their body may be a good candidate for a demineralized bone matrix. Additionally, when grafting bone, it is important that the donor bone is able to transfer host cells to the graft site. With a demineralized bone matrix, the bone has been carefully processed in order to elevate the bioavailability of the donor bone. Therefore, the graft can have a higher rate of success for restoration and regeneration.

What happens during the process of bone demineralization?

When bones begin to demineralize, they become softer and weaker. This makes them much more likely to fracture if they encounter any amount of trauma. For this reason, it is incredibly important to receive treatment if this process has begun to occur.

What is the difference between bone demineralization and osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease that can occur when the body's creation of new bone is not keeping up with how much old bone it is losing. While bone demineralization often leads to osteopenia, it does not necessarily mean that osteoporosis is on its way as well.
