Are you looking for an alternative to knee replacement surgery?
Artificial joints can feel unnatural and restrict high-level pursuits such as cycling, martial arts and weightlifting. The Arthrosurface Knee HemiCAP® and UniCAP® implants consist of a small cap and screw that allow the surgeon to restore only the damaged area of the joint, similar to the way a dentist fills in a cavity. The exposed and painful bone is covered while all the structures in your joint that help you move and function properly are left in place. For example, if you received an Arthrosurface® knee implant, your ACL and PCL would NOT be touched or removed, unlike if you were to have a total knee replacement. The Arthrosurface HemiCAP® and UniCAP® systems preserve your joint’s natural anatomy allowing you to resume an active lifestyle without pain.

For patients who have the beginning stages of arthritis or cartilage damage, Arthrosurface® has launched a biological solution for marrow stimulation named NanoFx (Nanofracture) that provides a better solution than a standard microfracture technique. NanoFx is a preliminary treatment for pain relief and is generally indicated for patients under 35 years old.
