Knee Cartilage Repair

If you are looking for an experienced sports medicine physician who offers advanced treatments for knee cartilage repair, turn to Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our practice is equipped to treat all types of cartilage damage in the knee, including those caused by accidental injury, such as ACL tears or patellar (knee cap) dislocations, as well as degenerative cartilage damage found in osteoarthritis. Our sports medicine team is comprised of dual board-certified physicians who have a specialized interest in minimally invasive joint treatments, including knee injuries.

A smooth layer of cartilage covers the joint surfaces of your thighbone and shinbone. This articular cartilage provides a gliding surface and shock absorption for the knee during impact and movement. If the cartilage gets damaged or degenerates, it will not heal on its own and further complications can result. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians proudly offers a full menu of advanced treatment options to restore your knee cartilage or stimulate new cartilage growth.

The choice of procedure largely depends on your graded degree of cartilage damage. You will find that we have a multidisciplinary team that designs individualized treatment plans, ranging from specific therapy programs to medications, injections and cartilage repair surgeries. Your surgery may include a procedure to fill in the cartilage defect with repair tissue or the use of biologics. Regardless of your treatment choice, we will carefully explain the procedure as well as what to expect following surgery.

Cartilage Reconstruction and Regeneration

Early identification and treatment of articular cartilage damage can have a significant impact on your outcome and prevent the need for artificial joint replacement. Our practice is qualified to offer biologic treatments for replacing the damaged cartilage before it completely wears out, thus reversing the signs of arthritis and preserving the knee joint. Cartilage grafting is a surgical procedure offered by Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. With our expertise in sports medicine biologics, you can trust that your damaged cartilage can be safely and successfully restored.

If you suffer from deep pain, stiffness, swelling or locking of the knee, you may be a candidate for cartilage repair surgery or cartilage grafting. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our orthopedic surgeons. We have leading sports medicine physicians who can restore your knee to optimal health and long-term function with minimally invasive techniques.

Jules F.

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.
