Microfracture is a medical procedure that can be used to treat small areas of damaged cartilage in the knee. During the procedure, a surgeon will make a small incision near the knee and use a specialized tool to create tiny holes in the bone beneath the damaged cartilage. This creates a small channel for blood and bone marrow to flow into the damaged area, which can help to stimulate the growth of new cartilage tissue. Over time, the new tissue can help to fill in the damaged area and improve knee function. The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis and may require a period of restricted activity or physical therapy to allow for proper healing. If you are experiencing knee pain or cartilage damage, make an appointment with Dr. Johnson to see if microfracture might be a good option for you.
