A cartilage restoration is a procedure where a patient’s knee is resurfaced, realigned and stabilized thereby avoiding a joint replacement. Cartilage restoration can be especially effective in patients who are under 50 and active. The articular cartilage is a firm, smooth and slippery covering on the ends of the bones that protects and cushions the bone joint. Injuries to this cartilage can cause pain and swelling.
What It Treats
Cartilage restoration can help treat defects or tears of the cartilage surface. Depending on the size of the defect, there are several surgical options, most of which are performed using minimally invasive techniques.Schedule an Appointment
