Eagle and Summit County's Trusted Knee Surgeon
Dr. Terrell Joseph
Articular Cartilage Surgery of Arthritic Knees
Articular cartilage is the smooth, slippery tissue that covers the ends of the bones where they come together to form a joint. Knee arthritis occurs when the articular cartilage in the knee joint starts to break down. This breakdown can be caused by the normal wear-and-day of everyday life or by a traumatic injury. Eventually, knee arthritis will cause pain, inflammation, and loss of motion.
Dr. Joseph's unique approach to articular cartilage starts with early diagnosis and treatment of his Vail Valley and Summit County patients. By proactively identifying the cause of the articular cartilage damage, Dr. Joseph can recommend an articular cartilage surgery to help repair the damaged cartilage and manage your arthritic symptoms.
