However, this effective method has its drawbacks:

Any operation is a risky intervention in the body. Transplantation of a part of the bone marrow is a complex procedure, since manipulations with stem or hematopoietic cells can lead to terrible consequences at the slightest mistake. During the operation, foreign material is introduced into the bone marrow. No one can predict how an organism will react to manipulation in its most protected and vulnerable place.
The high cost of the operation and the risk of the procedure are not the only possible negative consequences. Donor stem cells are foreign to the body, and in the future they can lead to serious diseases.
Of course, experts carefully select donors, but in nature there are no two organisms with the same characteristics and parameters.
