Introduction to joint cartilage management

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.

In the section on 'understanding arthritis' we discussed the importance of understanding the stage, extent and distribution of the joint surface damage in your knee, as different managements will be chosen based on these factors.

In this section, we go through the various treatment options and discuss the issues of each.
