Who is Eligible?

St. Helena cartilage restoration

Cartilage Restoration is recommended for patients with knee cartilage damage or deterioration caused by:

  • Injury or trauma, including sports injuries
  • Repetitive use of the joint
  • Congenital abnormalities, meaning those that a person is born with, affecting normal joint structure
  • Hormonal disorders that affect bone and joint development, such as osteochondritis dissecans (OCD)

Cartilage repair and regeneration is treatment for an otherwise healthy knee, but not for knees affected by osteoarthritis, a condition that causes natural cartilage deterioration from aging.
