Osteochondral Autograft Transplantation

USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Osteochondral Autograft Transplantation

Osteochondral autograft transplantation is performed to treat cartilage defects in the bone. Using arthroscopic techniques, surgeons transplant healthy cartilage tissue taken from one part of the joint and transfer to an area of cartilage in another area of the joint. The graft is pressed into place, leaving a smooth surface on the joint.
