Cartilage & Arthritis
Modern osteoarthritis treatments enable increasingly successful outcomes - Dr. Michael Lehmann
Thanks to advances in medicine, significant treatment successes can be achieved even for severe joint cartilage damage, including with cartilage cell transplants.
The field of orthobiology in particular has made a number of considerable advances in recent years that relate to the field of biological materials designed to replace parts of the musculoskeletal system.
With autologous chondrocyte transplantation, cartilage defects are repaired with the body's own cartilage cells, for example, which can produce high-quality cartilage tissue.
There are also a number of cartilage-regenerating methods that can achieve good successes with small-scale damage.
