Orthobiologics are natural substances such as cells, tissue, blood components, and growth factors that are harnessed to aid in the treatment of orthopedic injuries or conditions. They may be used to reduce pain and inflammation, improve joint function and/or stimulate healing. Orthobiologic preparations are usually obtained from your own body. They may be administered in the form of injections or may require a surgical procedure.
Cartilage transplantation procedures used to restore damaged cartilage structures. There are two main types of transplantation: cellular transplantation (juvenile chondrocytes, autologous and allograft chondrocyte transplantation) and structural grafting (osteochondral and meniscal transplantation).
Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint using very small incisions and instruments. Traditional procedures that previously required large incisions are now performed through much smaller approaches.
Knee reconstruction consists of the repair or reconstruction of soft-tissue injuries such as ligament, tendon, or meniscus tears. These injuries often require treatment of multiple ligaments and tendons during the same surgical procedure. Transplantation of donor tendons and ligaments is often performed.
