Cartilage Repair

Shoulder Cartilage Repair

Just as with other areas of cartilage in your body, the cartilage in your shoulder joint can become damaged and need repair. Wear and tear of shoulder cartilage is commonly found in shoulder arthritis. This arthritic development can occur from genetic osteoarthritis or shoulder injuries such as dislocations or overuse. In such cases, patients can trust our highly trained sports surgeons of Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for successful cartilage repair. We use modern techniques to relieve shoulder stiffness and pain caused by damaged cartilage. When initial treatments have failed, such as physical therapy or injections, we can recommend a conservative surgical option that will provide long-lasting recovery and help you regain an active lifestyle.

Cartilage Restoration Procedure

Many procedures for cartilage repair can be done arthroscopically, requiring small incisions and providing faster recovery time. Depending on the degree and specifics of your cartilage damage, our physicians can recommend the most effective surgical technique. For most patients, the goal is to remove damaged cartilage and stimulate new cartilage growth. The cartilage repair process is stimulated by perforating the exposed bone and releasing stem cells to the surface of the damaged joint. In situations where cartilage damage is too extensive, a grafting procedure or shoulder replacement may be necessary.

If you suffer from recurrent pain and limited range of motion in your shoulder, turn to Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We provide a full menu of state-of-the-art treatments in sports medicine, including conservative non-surgical and surgical solutions for your shoulder problems.

Fall Sports And Sport Related Injuries

There are six sports offered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for the fall season. However, the season of fall offers the least number of sports out of the three seasons of winter, spring and fall. Some may argue this, but the most popular fall collegiate sport is arguably, football. Which college football team do you cheer for?
