About Joint Preservation / Cartilage Restoration

Knee joint preservation and cartilage restoration offers the most recent treatment options for knee pain. These surgical options include the latest minimally invasive procedures. Many of these procedures are performed arthroscopically using a small camera placed through tiny incisions. In most cases, patients can return home on the same day as the surgery or, in some cases, only stay in the hospital overnight. In some cases, these procedures can reduce or prevent the onset or progression of arthritis and prolong the life of the knee joint. In turn, this may reduce the risk of needing a joint replacement. The surgeons at the University of Utah Orthopaedic Center specialize in innovative methods for restoring damaged cartilage that are available only in a small number of centers in the United States.
