Learn More about Your Knee Condition

In your joints, the ends of your bones are covered with hyaline articular cartilage, a firm and durable tissue. This cartilage allows the bones to move smoothly over one another, promoting painless mobility for joints like your knees.

Izf .3However, this cartilage can become damaged from athletics, traumatic injury, and normal wear and tear which may feel like aching and sharp pain, swelling, locking, or catching and giving way. Damaged cartilage has a limited ability to repair or restore itself. Left untreated, it might worsen and lead to a chronic condition in your knee.

Eric McCarty, M.D., orthopedic surgeon at CU Sports Medicine is a lead investigator in the Histogenics’ Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational cartilage tissue implant, NeoCart®, as compared to the current standard-of-care procedure, microfracture. Dr. McCarty is looking for candidates to participate in this study who are between 18 and 55 years old and have symptoms of pain in one knee.
