Cartilage regeneration has been a focus of Orthopedic Surgeons for decades. Cartilage damage or defects can occur after an injury such as an ACL tear. Cartilage has proven to be a very difficult tissue to work with, and it has frustrated researchers, surgeons, and patients. The FDA recently approved a process in the US known as MACI. Autologous chondrocyte implantation has been around for decades. The name implies that we biopsy and grow your own cartilage, then at a second procedure implant the grown cartilage back into your knee. MACI offers surgeons a potentially more reliable method to regenerate cartilage damage in your knee. Cartilage enables our joints to move and glide without any friction or any pain.
Every surgery requires some preparation. Removing the anxiety is one of our top priorities, from medication and home planning to recovery and rehabilitation, our team of orthopedic physicians are here to help and will guide you through every step.
The All Island Orthopedics team wishes its patients in Ozone Park a speedy and full recovery.
