Amputation

There is important progress being made in the management of knee arthritis, with new knowledge being gained in what is called 'cartilage restoration surgery'.

Serious attempts are being made by the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) to standardise both cartilage restoration techniques and rehabilitation protocols, to enable standardised evidence to be collected as to the efficacy of the different managements.

If you want to know what might be available to you, you need to gain an understanding of the stage, extent and distribution of the joint surface damage in your knee, because different managements will be chosen based on these factors. There are a number of classifications to aid in describing the extent of the arthritis.
