    Articular Cartilage Restoration

    Diagnosis of an articular cartilage injury begins with a physical exam to determine range of motion, swelling, and areas of tenderness. X-rays are critical to assess for arthritis and knee alignment issues. An MRI is ordered to assess the condition of the cartilage throughout the knee. At USC the radiologists use a 3 Tesla MRI machine to provide fine detail of articular cartilage.

    Knee Osteotomy

    Arthritis is an extremely common condition that develops in the knee over time most often due to wear and tear on the knee joint. Arthritis results in a loss of articular cartilage, the gliding surface of the knee. This results in a progressive roughening of the surfaces within the knee. Pain and swelling results, especially with increased activity.
