Accessing the services is quick and convenient. One of our financial navigators will ask you about your insurance and the medical procedure in question – then provide you with an estimate of the procedure’s cost.

Your doctor may recommend a breast biopsy to examine the growth more closely than possible with a mammogram. Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center offers stereotactic breast biopsy, an alternative to the traditional surgical biopsy. The procedure uses a special imaging technology to accurately target a questionable lesion, with significantly less pain and no scarring.
In the center of most large bones there is a soft tissue (called bone marrow) that makes about 95 percent of the body's blood cells. The marrow is a network of tissue that contains immature blood cells in an organized structure.
Red bone marrow is the active portion that produces red blood cells, while yellow bone marrow contains fat cells. In adults the red bone marrow is located in the flat bones, such as the upper hip bones and sternum. In children, the red bone marrow is in the long bones, such as the femur.
A bone marrow biopsy involves removing tissue from the red bone marrow to be sent to the lab for microscopic examination. The biopsy is done using a small needle inserted into an age appropriate area (long bone for children, flat bone for adults). A local anesthetic agent may be given before starting the procedure.
Joint aspiration refers to removing fluid from the space around a joint using a needle and syringe. This is usually performed under a local anesthetic to either relieve swelling or to obtain fluid for analysis to diagnose a joint disorder and/or problem.
Joint aspiration is usually performed on the knee. However, fluid can also be removed from other joints, such as the hip, ankle, shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
Other related procedures that may be used to help diagnose joint problems include X-ray, bone scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT scan), arthroscopy, and arthrography. Please see these procedures for additional information.
