In brief: Not hips

Peripheral stem cells can be collected without having to aspirate the bone marrow from bones.
This is the usual way now to collect "bone marrow" stem cells. You may consult this site for information on this topic: https://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/apheresis/Pages/stem-cell-harvest-apheresis.aspx It is commendable of you to think about being a donor!
