Joint cartilage, or articular cartilage, is a tough, rubber tissue covering the end of bones. It acts as a shock absorber and reduces friction to allow easier movement in your joints. Damaged cartilage can cause joint pain and weakness. Without treatment, it can worsen and cause disability, eventually needing joint replacement.
At Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we provide cartilage repair surgery to help prevent these complications. Cartilage repair and restoration includes a variety of surgical procedures that stimulate new cartilage growth or replace damaged cartilage.
If you have damaged cartilage, such as a meniscal or labral tear, call (574) 534-2548 to make an appointment with one of our board certified, fellowship trained providers. We offer a range of orthopedic surgeries, including cartilage repair, in Goshen, IN.
