Articular cartilage injuries of the knee are characterized by pain and sometimes mechanical symptoms such and catching or locking. After MRI evaluation, different methods of cartilage repair are discussed. Depending on the size of the cartilage lesion, age of the patient, and activity level, a surgical plan is developed. Dr. Bushnell has advanced training in cartilage repair and can help determine the best treatment option for your specific injury.
