How to avoid a total knee replacement with a BioKnee

Share this post

At the Stone Clinic in San Francisco we've developed an alternative to joint replacement that we call BIOKNEE. If you've got a painful knee either because you've got arthritis or you've lost the meniscus cartilage, we can put back in the biological tissues that you've lost. We can put back in a new meniscus cartilage from a donor, we graft your damaged articular cartilage with your own bone and cartilage and stem cells and we recreate those new surfaces biologically rather than with artificial materials.
