Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine provides the latest MACI (autologous cultured chondrocytes on porcine collagen membrane) procedures for the repair of cartilage defects of the knee in adult patients, with or without bone involvement.
The first FDA-approved product of its kind, MACI allows the skilled physicians at Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to arthroscopically biopsy the patient’s knee to extract cells, which are sent to our partner laboratory. There, new cells are engineered from the patient’s cartilage and adhered to a mesh, which is returned to the physician and implanted into the patient’s knee.
Knee cartilage can be damaged though injury, strain, or overuse, and is a common problem seen by our physicians. The MACI product for the repair of knee cartilage is just one way that Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine provides the latest in medical treatments and solutions for our patients.
