What is the BioKneesm Progam?
|The BioKneesm Program is our approach to treating knee injuries, from trauma to arthritis, and is designed to help people delay, or even avoid, artificial knee replacement. The BioKneesm Program is a scientifically-proven collection of our outpatient surgical techniques and procedures and consists of any combination of meniscus transplantation and articular cartilage stem cell paste grafting.|
Having moderate to advanced arthritis or being "bone on bone" does not always mean that the joint needs to be artificially replaced. Often the "bone-on-bone" is isolated to a portion of the knee joint and can be repaired with the BioKneesm Program.
The BioKneesm Program is a combination of:
| Meniscus Transplantation|
By replacing all or a portion of the meniscus with donor cartilage, the patient can regain the natural “shock absorber” in the knee and experience many additional years of activity, even in the presence of arthritis.

| Articular Cartilage Stem Cell Paste Grafting|
This innovative surgical technique utilizes a patient’s own stem cells to regrow their cartilage in a single, outpatient procedure. This technique has scientifically-proven results in various peer-reviewed publications. You can learn more about the articular cartilage paste graft procedure by clicking here.
