Every day people injure the cartilage in their knees, shoulders and other joints. Regardless of the cause, the result is the same: tremendous pain that makes it difficult to enjoy your daily life.  In many cases, these injuries happen to people too young to undergo artificial joint replacement surgery.  This is where skilled surgeons of the OrthoCarolina Cartilage Restoration Institute step in.

Knee cartilage injuries can happen during sports activities, at work, or simply doing everyday activities.  When damaged, symptoms such as pain, swelling, locking or catching in the joint, and a loss of mobility can occur. Knee cartilage cannot heal itself, and if left untreated, may get worse over time. Luckily, for young, active, adult patients, there are surgical alternatives that have been shown to potentially solve these problems.

Among the conditions treated at our Cartilage Institute:

  • Cartilage Damage
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD Lesions)
  • Meniscus Tears
