Cartilage Transplantation Offers New Hope for Damaged Knees
Tuesday, October 29, 6:30-8 pm
Speaker: Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist Demetris Delos, MD
Cartilage transplantation offers exciting new treatment options for adults under the age of 50 who have had their knee damaged through acute or chronic trauma to the knee. The surgeon uses small cylindrical plugs of good cartilage and inserts them into the damaged areas. This procedure has been shown to be highly effective in patients who have sustained a specific injury to the knee cartilage or joint lining, and who have not yet developed arthritis. Many competitive athletes who have undergone the treatment have returned to their full performance level after surgery.
