Advanced Cartilage Repair and Transplantation at PRIME Orthopedics & Regenerative Center

Welcome to PRIME Orthopedics & Regenerative Center in Delray Beach, where the future of joint health is not just imagined, it’s a reality. Our center is at the forefront of offering advanced cartilage repair and transplantation techniques, providing new hope and solutions for those suffering from joint pain and mobility issues. This blog post delves into the exciting world of cartilage repair and transplantation, a game-changer in orthopedic medicine.

What is Cartilage and Why is its Repair Important?

Cartilage is a resilient and smooth elastic tissue, a rubber-like padding that covers and protects the ends of long bones at the joints. It is a crucial component of the joint, providing a smooth surface for movement and capable of absorbing a significant amount of shock. However, unlike other tissues in the body, cartilage doesn’t repair itself easily after injury. This is where the advanced techniques at PRIME Orthopedics & Regenerative Center come into play.

The Challenges of Cartilage Damage

Cartilage damage can result from various factors including age-related wear and tear, injuries, and conditions like osteoarthritis. The repercussions of damaged cartilage are significant, leading to pain, reduced mobility, and a decreased quality of life. Traditional treatments have ranged from pain management to joint replacement surgeries. However, these solutions often provide only temporary relief or involve significant recovery times.

Innovative Cartilage Repair and Transplantation at PRIME Orthopedics & Regenerative Center

Our center offers cutting-edge treatments that focus on repairing the damaged cartilage, thereby addressing the root cause of the problem rather than just managing symptoms. Here’s a look at some of the groundbreaking procedures we offer:

Microfracture Surgery
This technique is particularly effective for small areas of cartilage damage. Our skilled surgeons create small fractures in the underlying bone. This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, resulting in new cartilage growth.

Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI)
ACI represents a significant advancement in cartilage repair. It involves two steps: harvesting healthy cartilage cells from the patient, then culturing these cells in a laboratory to multiply them. The expanded cells are later implanted back into the damaged area, promoting the growth of new cartilage.

Osteochondral Autograft and Allograft Transplantation
For larger areas of cartilage damage, we employ Osteochondral Autograft and Allograft Transplantation. In Autograft Transplantation, we transfer bone and cartilage from an unaffected area of the patient’s body to the damaged site. Allograft Transplantation, on the other hand, involves the use of bone and cartilage from a donor. This method is highly effective in restoring joint function and relieving pain.

Mosaicplasty is an innovative technique we use at our center. It involves taking small plugs of healthy cartilage and bone from a non-weight-bearing area of the joint and transplanting them into the damaged area. This procedure is highly effective for treating localized cartilage damage.

Synthetic Material-based Cartilage Repair
We also offer cutting-edge solutions involving synthetic materials, which act as scaffolds for the growth of new cartilage. This option is particularly useful for patients who may not have enough healthy cartilage for grafting.
