Injuries and arthritis can be treated with biologic or bionic (artificial) solutions. We have developed a variety of tissue regeneration approaches. This video describes the current and future directions of joint repair. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, California we concentrate on returning injured people to their activities fitter, faster and stronger than they were before they were injured. Our expertise is in knee, shoulder, and ankle injuries, joint arthritis treatment, and avoiding knee replacement. We have developed advanced surgical and rehabilitation techniques focused on cartilage and ligament repair, regeneration, and replacement.

Knees do not necessarily wear out evenly, sometimes one part of the knee is perfectly fine while another part is completely destroyed. If only part of the knee joint is worn out, why replace all of it?
Metal has been used in patients since the time of Hippocrates (400 BCE) to repair broken bones and replace missing parts. The earliest metals included copper, tin or lead and often did not have the strength to last forever. Over the years, the metals we use have improved. They have become stronger and leach fewer ions into the body.
