Articular Cartilage Transfer
« on: April 20, 2005, 09:06:42 PM »
...also known as Mosaicplasty.  Has anyone had this surgery?  If so, what was your recovery like?  I'm having surgery two weeks from today.  Not worried about the surgery...but the recovery!!!  I won't see the OS until next Tuesday.

Check out the arthritis section of the bulletin boards.  There is 1 board on cartiage plug transfers, which includes OATS and moasicplasty.  You will find lots of information and recovery diaries there.
ACI was supposed to be 2/21/06.  On 6/29/06 Insurance co said have another scope, and if it still looks good, they'll ok the ACI.
