Articular cartilage transplantation in South West London
Articular cartilage is the tough, flexible tissue that lines the joint, allowing the surfaces to move smoothly over one another. Traumatic damage to this cartilage in the knee is a common sports injury and, until recently, brought about the end of many a sporting career, due to the tissue's inability to repair itself.
Performed by Mr Adhikari, articular cartilage transplantation is an exciting new technique that is showing great promise in treating these distressing injuries. A small sample of healthy cartilage tissue is removed from the knee joint in a keyhole procedure, and then grown on a special membrane in a laboratory to a size that will fit the defect that is being treated. This cell-containing membrane is then secured to the defect with a biological glue in a second operation. Early, non-controlled trials of articular cartilage transplantation in patients at 5-8 years have produced good to excellent outcomes in 75-90% of patients, and Mr Adhikari is an investigator in the latest European-wide study into the technique.
Mr. Ajeya Adhikari is an accredited consultant for the UK's leading private healthcare providers and private hospitals, including HCA Hospitals.
