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.

Fix a meniscus to avoid arthritis
A recent study suggested that meniscus surgery doesn't help. Studies can be misleading. Even small losses of meniscus tissue lead to big changes in force concentration on the tibia (shin bone) and eventually arthritis.
The incidence of such tears is about 61 per 100,000 people each year. Yet the repair/replacement ratio is well under 10% for repair and 0.01% for replacement. Why?
To cut, or not to cut? To repair, or to let heal? To rehab without fixing? To live with imperfect parts? Each of these questions is faced every day by surgeons and their patients. Here are a few decisions about incisions.
