Matt Reardon is a professional skier and musician. Prior to coming to The Stone Clinic, Matt's knees were considered bone on bone and he had a failed OATS procedure, meniscectomy and microfracture. He visited The Stone Clinic in 2004 and underwent the Biologic Knee Replacement Program consisting of a medial meniscus transplant and articular cartilage paste grafting.
