Center for Cartilage Restoration


U.S. News award badge

If you’re young and active, cartilage injuries or defects can do more than just slow you down. If left untreated, they can lead to more serious disability and, in severe cases, early joint replacement.

Experts at the Center for Cartilage Restoration specialize in repairing or replacing damaged cartilage before more advanced deterioration occurs.

They are leaders in developing innovative biologic methods for addressing early cartilage damage in the knee, shoulder, elbow, foot, ankle and hip. These early treatments can delay or even prevent the need for joint replacement surgery.
