NY Times article on cartilage repair using stem cells


Mimicking Human Cartilage to Repair a Knee

According to the New York Times,  Orthomimetics,  developed a scaffold approved for use in Europe from a collaboration between  the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge.The scaffold is off the shelf & allows stem cells to be absored to regenerate cartilage.

My former colleague Bert Mandelbaum MD was quoted. This treatment may lower the expense typically involved and may be available to more patients because of less  preparation time.  This is just an example of the progress being made in cartilage repair. Ultimately I feel there will be a trend towards more injection based cartilage repair with less invasive surgery.  As technology is advancing with improved live imaging, doctors wont have to open up a joint or insert an obtrusive scope  to properly treat it.
