Knee cartilage transplantation in Lancashire
Cartilage is the strong, flexible tissue that covers the surface of joints, enabling the bones to slide easily over one another. Cartilage damage caused by general wear and tear is common in older people, however direct impact to the knee or heavy falls can damage the cartilage in younger people. Cartilage does not repair itself very easily and damage to it can cause persistent pain and instability in the knee, eventually leading to arthritis of the knee joint.
Older patients with cartilage damage or osteoarthritis are usually treated by replacing the knee joint, however this is not a good solution for younger patients, especially athletes. For these patients, Mr Raut is now able to offer the latest cartilage transplantation technique. Using keyhole surgery (arthroscopy), a very small sample of healthy cartilage cells is taken from the knee and transferred to a laboratory, where it grown in culture. In a second operation the damaged part of the cartilage is removed and the new cells implanted. Patients are expected to be able to resume everyday use of the knee in three months and return fully to sporting activities within twelve.
