Cartilage Lesions

Cartilage Lesions

This condition can be thought of as a defect or “pothole” in the cartilage layer covering the end of the bone that makes up the joint. This differs from arthritis in that a cartilage lesion is a focal defect as opposed to arthritis which is a more widespread thinning or loss of cartilage at the end of the bone. These types of injuries can result over time or occur at the time of an acute injury. Stem cells and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) have shown great success in treating pain from these types of injuries.
