Cartilage Injury in Knee Joint

  Knee Cartilage InjuryEarly Knee Arthritis represents damage to articular cartilage. Patients typically feel pain on getting up from sitting position or climbing stairs.

Most cases of Early Knee Arthritis can be satisfactorily treated conservatively with Glucosamine supplements and Physiotherapy. However, some patients do not get adequate relief.

Knee Pain persisting for more than 6 weeks, and not responding to standard conservative treatment; should always be evaluated with MRI scan. MRI can detect early cartilage damage at Gr I or Gr II. These changes represent reversible damage. However, if the cartilage damage progresses to Gr III or IV, it eventually progresses to arthritis unless treated.

Gr IV cartilage damage as seen in image can be stabilized using Chondroplasty; a procedure using Radiofrequency ablation and curettage. This procedure involves two small single stitch entry points, and takes approximately 30- 40 minutes. Recovery is fast, as there is no damage to muscles or ligaments. Most patients get back to normal activity within 3-5 days; however sports activity is restricted for 4-6 weeks depending upon the size of lesion.
