Have you developed knee pain in young age? You might be cured by Autologous chondrocyte implantation. Small to medium sized lesions can be treated with this method. Cartilage lesions are the pre cursor to arthritis. Early diagnosis and treatment of this condition can delay progression to osteo-arthritis.
See this press release http://www.hindu.com/2005/02/08/stories/2005020812550600.htm ,
I have follow up of seven years and more for microfracture cases.
Autologous chondrocyte implantation is a novel treatment recently introduced. This is a two step process. It is best suited for early cases of cartilage loss.
When patients feel a sharp pain while climbing stairs or rising , it is an indication of early cartilage loss. Proper investigations and biological treatment at this stage can prevent progression to osteo-arthritis.
