Cartilage Restoration

Cartilage Restoration

Naperville Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Zahab Ahsan specializes in cartilage restoration. Recent advances in tissue engineering and surgical techniques provide solutions for patients suffering from cartilage disease. Dr. Ahsan has received advanced training in cartilage restoration at the world-renowned Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) which allows him to surgically repair or replace cartilage within the knee, elbow, shoulder, and ankle.

Human joints are covered by a glistening, smooth white tissue called articular cartilage. Your cartilage allows the bones to glide without friction, allowing for painless, smooth movements. When cartilage is damaged by normal wear and tear, traumatic injury or disease, normal movement is compromised resulting in pain and inflammation. Dr. Ahsan can help you recover with cutting-edge techniques.

Novel cartilage restoration techniques Dr. Ahsan offers:

  • Autologous Osteochondral Transfer (Autologous Mosiacplasty)
  • Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation (OATS)
  • MACI (Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation)
  • DeNovo NT (Particulated Juvenile Cartilage Implant)

Please contact our clinic to learn more about what we can do to treat your cartilage injury.
