If I Could Turn Back Time...
MACI. Matrix-induced Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation. We have the technology. We can rebuild you. We have the capability to remake your joint.
In properly selected patients, we can harvest a small piece of cartilage from your joint arthroscopically and regrow cartilage. Your cartilage. Your own cells. No rejection. With an initial 95% success. Longevity studies have found 75% success at 16 to 20 years.
In the videos below meet one of our patients who is 6 weeks out. She initially had pain scales that were 10/10 with activity. She had proven cartilage defects of the femoral condyle which led to grinding catching and sharp pain that limited her activity and caused her to limp significantly. She had given up hope for return to full activity until she was introduced to MACI.
We can turn back time without listening to Cher. Want to dance again? What are you waiting for? 💃 🕺🏾
