Hydrogel (Hydragel?)
« on: March 28, 2008, 12:30:44 AM »
Hi all,
Dr. Thomas Gill at Mass General Hospital is experimenting with “Hydragel” as a means of filling defects on knees. Anyone know anything about this? The following article in the Boston globe discusses his work on knees (way at the bottom of the story), though it does not mention the substance by name.
See http://www.boston.com/news/health/articles/2008/02/04/mgh_center_is_a_pioneer_in_knee_repair/.

Lastly, I was not sure where to post this so I hope this is the best "board" for posting.
Thanks,
Neil.
