BioKnee is a revolutionary treatment for arthritis that has permitted hundreds of people with moderate to severe arthritis to stay active and avoid or delay total knee replacement.
BioKnee is performed as an outpatient surgical procedure that replaces the shock absorbing cartilages in your knee by combining these two unique procedures and techniques.
Stem Cell Paste Graft
This innovative surgical technique designed by Dr. Stone that uses your own stem cells by forming a paste with bone marrow and cartilage from your intercondylar notch to regrow your articular cartilage. This is done in a single outpatient procedure.
A meniscus transplant replaces your worn or missing natural shock absorber in the knee using a donor cartilage. Dr. Stone designed a three-tunnel technique to secure the meniscus to the tibial plateau in order to provide shock absorption even in an arthritic knee.
"These procedures come together to form what we call BioKnee, a clinically-proven technique to stave off arthritis and keep you doing the things you love."
