What is Articular Cartilage Restoration?

ARTICULAR CARTILAGE is the smooth, white tissue that covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints. Healthy cartilage in our joints makes it easier to move. It allows the bones to glide over each other with very little friction. Articular cartilage can be damaged by injury or normal wear and tear. Because cartilage does not heal itself well, doctors have developed surgical techniques to stimulate the growth of new cartilage. Restoring articular cartilage can relieve pain, allow better function, and delay or prevent the onset of arthritis.

Surgical techniques to repair damaged cartilage are still evolving. It is hoped that as more is learned about cartilage and the healing response, surgeons will be better able to restore an injured joint.

Patient of Dr. Rhim

This is the best Doctor I’ve ever been to for chronic disk problems in my back. He reads his own MRI’s and such, went to a top US Medical school and the surgical procedure I had with him couldn’t have gone better. The staff is efficient and very friendly.
