Title: Denovo NT vs Osteochondral Allograft?
Post by: willrunagain on March 05, 2015, 03:23:01 PM
Hello Knee Geeks!
I know there are a lot of post op diaries on the Denovo procedure, but I don't see much about osteochondral allografting.  These are basically my two options for my 2x2cm central defect on my right patella.  I'm a formerly active 25 y/o male and would like to at least be able to do some hard cycling again someday. The occasional easy training run would be icing on the cake at this point. 

In short, is there anybody out there who has had either of these procedures and been able to return to at least some form of athletic activity?
