Cartilage regeneration has a long clinical history that is aimed at restoring cartilage in the area where it was damaged or lost. The loss or damage of cartilage causes inflammation in the joints due to the pressure being unloaded on the underlying bone. Negligence could even result to damage on cartilages close to that area and can even result in a degenerate joint.
At The Sports Injury Clinic, our cartilage regeneration team led by Prof Paul Lee factors in our patients’ individual needs and requirements and tailors a treatment plan appropriately.

Biological scaffold is best for small sized damages to the cartilage. The recovery and rehab time is often shorter with this form of treatment as it is done as a keyhole surgery.
Bone Marrow Therapy
Bone marrow therapy is a great source to obtain cells. There are various ways of obtaining cells from them and processing the bone marrow itself. When it comes to treating fractures and some specific cartilage issues, this technique is very powerful.
With Biological treatments, there are quite a few options, but they are all not the same. This treatment type isn’t for everyone. Our orthopaedic team encourage patients to understand the science behind each of these treatments and take an informed decision which is best suited for them.
