Meniscus Transplantation For Athlete Longevity Atlanta, GA
three physicians

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer meniscal transplants to our patients who have suffered from a meniscus tear or other knee injuries. This is an important procedure because when your knee loses its shock absorber it can become unstable. It can also cause knee and bone wearing, arthritis, and other painful knee problems.

A meniscal transplant will allow you to benefit from a minimally invasive procedure that results in a faster recovery time for you and less scarring. Meniscal transplants are ideal for athletes and active individuals who wish to resume the same level of competition and abilities after the procedure is performed and proper rehabilitation is completed.

Studies have shown that after meniscus transplantation surgery competitive athlete can return to their chosen sport without additional damage to their knee joint. You can read more about the study here.

If you’re considering if meniscus transplantation is right for you, you may want to keep a few things in mind.

  1. You need to have a plan for proper physical therapy and rehabilitation after the surgery is completed.
  2. Meniscal transplants are not the solution for every person. If you have arthritis in your knee, this procedure may not help you.
  3. In order to prepare for your transplant, healthy cartilage tissue is taken from a cadaver (human donor) and frozen. This tissue is known as an allograft. It is sized specifically for you.

To discover if you are eligible for meniscus transplantation, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
