Abrasion arthroplasty
« on: April 25, 2003, 07:55:17 PM »
An 'abrasion arthroplasty' is a procedure to help reshape an early arthritic joint, by rubbing down below the damaged cartilage joint surface into the underlying bleeding bone. It is more aggressive than 'chondroplasty'. You can see from the main KNEEguru site how it fits in to the 'menu' of treatment options:
