Articular Cartilage Repair

Articular cartilage repair is an orthopedic arthroscopic surgery performed when the delicate tissue covering the end of the bone becomes damaged. Dr. Schwartz repairs articular cartilage with the BioCartilage technique, which allows him to precisely remove the damaged tissue and shape a new extracellular matrix with allografted articular cartilage.

Dr. Schwartz recommends this video, shared courtesy of medical device company Arthrex, to help patients understand and prepare for this treatment option.
