I believe that joint preservation is the future of orthopedic surgery. Damage to the cartilaginous surfaces of joints does not repair itself in adults. The inability of the human body to regenerate or repair joint surface cartilage continues to be a modern day mystery. As we strive to become more active and live healthier, it is inevitable that sports injuries occur more frequently. Patients now have many options in how to treat this damage.
