Description: Technological advances and a paradigm shift towards the importance of patient expectations have caused some surgeons to take a second look at conventional cartilage repair techniques.
Surgeons developed abrasion arthroplasty more than 25 years ago, but only now are they realizing the technique’s full potential. “Maybe [surgeons in the past] didn’t see enough good results and happy patients with it and so most of these people abandoned it,” Jürgen Toft, MD, CEO and chief surgeon at the Alpha Klinik in Munich, told Orthopedics Today . “It was basically laying by the wayside, if you will.”
