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.

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.

Meniscus a C-shaped piece of hard cartilage found inside the knee joint between the femur & tibia. It works as shock absorbant, reducing pressure to the cartilage and the bone in the joint. If torn it can cause severe sharp pain in the knee and may result in swelling and stiffness in the joint blocking movement and even straightening your knee completely. This form of injury comes along with cartilage injury and is caused when the knee endures significant trauma resulting a tear in the meniscus. Meniscus in younger individuals is more flexible and with time a deformed meniscus will spring back into its original shape. As you get older […]
Photo by Alex King on Unsplash It’s only the second day of Pepper’s dream job, and already it feels like an eternity. Pepper hardly slept a wink last night, her mind racing from reflecting on what was a nightmare first day, Pepper, reluctantly dragged her body out of bed at 5am, showered, cleaned her teeth, swigged down a cup of green tea, limped wearily to her car and not recalling the journey arrived 2 hours early at the training ground. There were no other cars in the car park save for the security guard who was less than impressed having to extract himself from scrolling through facebook to lift the barrier for Pepper. […]
