Treatment of Cartilage Damage

Management Cartilage Damage

If there is damage on both sides of the joint the knee will need to be managed according to knee arthritis.

If there is an isolated cartilage lesion surgery may be beneficial.

Non-surgical options

  • Chondroitin Sulphate (from sharks)
  • Viscosupplements (from roosters combs)

Surgical Options - we are still trying to work out the best and most reliable technique.

  • Microfracture
  • OATS - Osteochondral plugs
  • Cartilage Transplantation eg MACI
