Here’s an insight into how our center excels in cartilage transplantation, embodying the principles of regenerative medicine

Cartilage Transplant Surgery

Personalized Cartilage Transplantation Techniques:

Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI):
Prime Orthopedics & Regenerative Medicine specializes in ACI, a two-step process that epitomizes the regenerative approach. We extract healthy cartilage cells from the patient, cultivate them to increase their numbers, and then re-implant them into the damaged area. This personalized approach ensures that the new cartilage is perfectly matched to the patient’s body, reducing the risk of rejection and enhancing recovery.

Allograft Transplantation:
For patients who may not have sufficient healthy cartilage for an autograft, we offer allograft transplantation using donor tissue. This method allows us to replace damaged tissue with healthy cartilage, promoting integration and regeneration within the patient’s joint.

Advanced Regenerative Techniques:

Tissue Engineering with Scaffolds:
At our center, we use cutting-edge scaffolds that support the growth and integration of new cartilage cells. These scaffolds are designed to mimic the natural environment of cartilage, enhancing the healing process.

Growth Factors and Biologics:
We incorporate the latest in biologic treatments, including growth factors, to facilitate cartilage growth and healing. These biologics are selected based on individual patient needs, ensuring a targeted and effective regenerative process.

Focused on Natural Healing:

Leveraging the Body’s Healing Abilities: Our approach to cartilage transplantation is aligned with the body’s natural healing processes. Techniques like microfracture surgery are used to stimulate the body’s own repair mechanisms, fostering natural cartilage growth.

Minimally Invasive Procedures:

At Prime Orthopedics & Regenerative Medicine, we prioritize minimally invasive techniques for cartilage transplantation. This approach not only reduces recovery time but also maximizes the body’s natural healing response, making the treatment less taxing for our patients.

Comprehensive Care and Support:

We believe in a holistic treatment approach. From the initial consultation to post-procedure rehabilitation, our team provides comprehensive care. Our rehabilitation programs are tailored to each patient, focusing on restoring strength, mobility, and overall joint function.

Cartilage Transplant FAQs

Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions regarding cartilage transplant at PRIME Orthopedics & Regenerative Center.

What is a Cartilage Transplant?

A cartilage transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces damaged cartilage in a joint with healthy cartilage, either from another part of the patient’s body (autograft) or from a donor (allograft).

Who is a Good Candidate for a Cartilage Transplant?

Ideal candidates are typically younger individuals with localized cartilage damage, often due to injury or a specific condition like osteochondritis dissecans. It’s less suitable for those with widespread arthritis.

How is Cartilage Harvested for a Transplant?

In autograft procedures, cartilage is harvested from a non-weight-bearing area of the patient’s joint. In allograft procedures, cartilage is obtained from a tissue donor.

What Joints are Commonly Treated with Cartilage Transplants?

The knee is the most common joint treated, but cartilage transplants can also be performed on other joints like the ankle and hip.

What is the Success Rate of Cartilage Transplants?

Success rates vary, but many patients experience significant improvement in pain relief and joint function. Factors affecting success include the size and location of the defect, the patient’s overall health, and adherence to rehabilitation.

How Long Does Recovery Take After a Cartilage Transplant?

Recovery can vary from several months to a year, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s individual healing process. Rehabilitation involves physical therapy to regain strength and mobility.
