I have 40% full cartilage loss (seen during scope surgery) in my hip. I am too young for replacement. Is there a way to regrow cartilage?

Internal Medicine - Rheumatology

In brief: No surgery now

I'm afraid I can't advise you about Cartlifgr replacement.
There is research looking at this point. It would be wise to make sure that the specific diagnosis for your arthritis is made. Have you seen a rheumatologist. What else did they seenwhen you were scoped. What's the definition of your type of arthritis?
