Knee Arthroscopy: Cartilage reconstruction is still considered an emerging field however newer techniques have high levels of success. Of course it is dependent upon the technique employed (dependent upon the depth and the breath of the damage) if you have a microfracture, enhanced microfracture, oats or autologous chondrocyte implantation (aci), that your result will almost certainly be better than doing nothing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
