Revision: Sounds like you will need a revision of an inadequate resection the first time. Hopefully you will do better this time, don't hesitate to seek a second opinion.

PRP: Platelet rich plasma injections. The growth factors in your own blood platelets regenerate cartilage and heals. I have performed few of these procedures with very good results. You also need a comprehensive work up for essential mineral deficiency
