Osteochondritis Dissecans Surgery

Osteochronditis dissecans affects the joints. Cartilage along with a slim layer of bone becomes unattached from the bone. It is most common in the knee but can affect other joints. Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery is typically used to treat osteochondritis dissecans. This type of surgery means less pain, faster recovery and less complications. The surgery restores normal blood flow to the joint.
