One of the most vexing problems in podiatric surgery over the past few decades has been surgical cartilage repair. The surgeons at University Foot and Ankle Institute are pleased to offer a revolutionary technique, DeNovo cartilage repair. This new technology has shown promise in improving short term and long term outcomes of ankle joint surgery.
The DeNovo graft requires only one surgery, which can be performed arthroscopically and offers remarkable regenerative powers. Patients can expect a shorter hospital stay compared to open surgery, and should be back to work in about 4-6 weeks.
