Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation
Or call us on
ACI (autologous chondrocyte implantation) and MACI (matrix-induced chondrocyte implantation) are advanced tissue-engineered technologies used to repair damaged articulating surfaces, mainly in the knee joint.
Articulating cartilage is the tissue covering the ends of joint surfaces. Healthy articulating cartilage allows the joint to move smoothly. Damage or injury to cartilage can cause pain, swelling, knee locking (joint is stuck in one position) or the knee can give way. Damage can often lead to osteoarthritis later.
When conservative treatments such as knee arthroscopy are not successful your consultant may recommend surgery, depending on the exact situation in your knee.
