Our orthopedic specialists will assess your cartilage injury and develop a treatment plan based on your age and the severity and location of the damage. We will consider how your injury affects your lifestyle and whether you are candidate for minimally invasive surgery.

Overview

Our doctors and specialists may begin treatment with anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling and begin physical therapy to strengthen and stabilize the area around your injury. We may recommend arthroscopic surgery if you’re young and active, though surgery may not be recommended in those with arthritis or of advanced age.
