Cartilage Transfer

Cartilage transfer involves using healthy cartilage from a normal area of the knee and moving it to a damaged area of the knee. The procedure begins by using a coring tool that makes a perfectly round hole in the bone in the area of damage. Then, a plug of normal cartilage is harvested and implanted into the hole that was created.


You will likely wear a brace and will be given crutches or a walker to prevent from having to place weight on the affected area until healing is confirmed.
