Cartilage Regeneration

If you’ve been diagnosed with cartilage damage and osteoarthritis in your knee and are looking for an alternative to total joint replacement, cartilage regeneration may be an option for you. Board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr Joseph Broyles has completed a clinical trial with 21 knee patients with a procedure that utilizes your body’s own stem cells to regrow lost cartilage and has been invited to present his research at various regional and national meetings.
