Cartilage regeneration has a long clinical history that is aimed at restoring cartilage in the area where it was damaged or lost. The loss or damage of cartilage causes inflammation in the joints due to the pressure being unloaded on the underlying bone. Negligence could even result to damage on cartilages close to that area and can even result in a degenerate joint. At The Sports Injury Clinic, our cartilage regeneration team led by Prof Paul Lee factors in our patients’ individual needs and requirements and tailors a treatment plan appropriately. Cartilage Cell therapy is not Stem Cells.
