Joint pain is common nowadays. Most common reason leading to joints pain is cartilage damage. It may be due to any trauma or disease. Cartilage has least potential of healing. Healing process of damage cartilage leads to formation of fibrous cartilage. Fibrous cartilage is inferior in quality and resilience compared to natural hyaline cartilage. Such patients does not get relief even after prolonged rest, physiotherapy and medication. This leads to persistent pain and disability. Cartilage restoration therapy is boon to such patients. Cartilage Restoration bridges the gap between medical treatment and joint replacement surgery. It helps in prolonging the onset of severe osteoarthritis and need of early joint replacement surgery. Cartilage restoration procedures involve repairing the localized defect or damage of the cartilage, just like filling the pothole on the road. We at Knee, Hip and Shoulder Clinic use various Cartilage Restorative Techniques to alleviate long standing joint pain and associated disability of our patients. Some of the techniques which we utilize to treat are: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Hyaluronic Acid Injections. Meniscus repair or transplant. Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System (OATS)technique or cartilage transfer. Chondroplasty and many other cartilage and joint restorative procedures. These procedures are indicated in patients with otherwise healthy knee, which because of recent trauma or disease developed knee problems. Conditions where cartilage restoration works well is: Injury Congenital anomalies Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) Joint pain due to overuse. If you are suffering from knee pain which is not responding to medications and physiotherapy. You may be a candidate for cartilage restoration procedure. If damaged cartilage is not treated, it worsens over time and leads to early osteoarthritis. This may require major surgical interventions like total knee replacement later. We are happy to help you in properly diagnosing and treating knee pain. Let us know about your joint pain Dr Mohit Madan Knee Hip & Shoulder Clinic 9211118115/9013677886
