REGROW is a revolutionary approach in treating cartilage lesions in young knee joints and also ankle joints. Cartilage is harvested from healthy part of knee and cultured in laboratory. These cultured cartilage cells are used to fill the defects in lining of knee joint. OSSRON is another novel method in treatment of AVASCULAR NECROSIS OF FEMORAL HEAD. AVN of FEMORAL HEAD is a condition in which there is gradual cell death in femoral head resulting in arthritis. If AVN is identified in initial stages it can be treated by OSSRON. In this technique during first stage cells are harvested from pelvis bone and sent for culture. In second stage the femoral head is drilled to relive pressure and culture stem cells are injected into femoral head. These new cells help in restoring architecture of native femoral head there by delaying the progress of AVN.
