Mosaic-plasty - Dr. Michael Lehmann

What is a mosaic-plasty?

Mosaic-plasty, also known as the transplantation of osteochondral autografts, is a comparatively new method that can be used for defects up to three centimetres in size and which can achieve good to very good results in 70 to 90% of cases.


When is a mosaic-plasty indicated?

With this method, cartilage cylinders, including the underlying bone, are removed from less-damaged areas of the joint and transplanted into the defective section of cartilage. This technique is particularly useful for cartilage damage in the knee or ankle joint.
