barnaclinic+ introduces osteochondral transplantation, a pioneering technique to treat cartilage lesions
A few weeks ago, barnaclinic+ added a new cutting-edge technique to its range of services for the treatment of articular cartilage injuries: the Fresh Osteochondral Transplant. This innovative surgical treatment offers hope and effective solutions for patients suffering from articular cartilage injuries who are looking to regain function and quality of life.
WHAT IS OSTEOCHONDRAL TRANSPLANTATION OR CARTILAGE TRANSPLANTATION?
Osteochondral transplantation involves replacing damaged cartilage tissue and underlying bone with healthy donor tissue. This procedure, performed by experts in sports traumatology and orthopaedic surgery, offers an effective alternative to address cartilage injuries and promote regeneration of the affected joint.
“Osteochondral Transplantation is an advanced technique that allows us to replace damaged tissue with healthy tissue, providing a real chance of recovery for our patients. It is a significant advance in the field of regenerative medicine and we are pleased to offer this new service at barnaclínic+,” says Dr. Sergi Sastre, Head of the Arthroscopy Section at Hospital Clínic de Barcelona and traumatologist at barnaclínic+.

TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR ARTICULAR CARTILAGE INJURIES
Articular cartilage injuries can cause pain, limited movement and impaired quality of life due to joint involvement. Previously, treatment options for these injuries were limited, and many patients faced the prospect of a knee prosthesis as the only long-term solution. However, Osteochondral Transplantation provides a more promising and less invasive alternative.
“With Osteochondral Transplantation, we can address cartilage lesions at an early stage and provide a long-lasting solution that restores joint function. In addition, this procedure would allow us to avoid or delay the need for a knee prosthesis, especially in young, active patients who wish to maintain their active lifestyle,” adds Dr Sastre.
