The Carticel Procedure

Repairing a patients' cartilage with their own cells.

Critical factors to a successful outcome following Carticel implantation:

  • Careful patient selection
  • Addressing all concomitant knee pathology
  • An appropriate rehabilitation program

Studies have shown Carticel to be an effective knee cartilage repair treatment for many patients who have had an inadequate response to a prior arthroscopic or other surgical repair procedure.
