Synthetic Cartilage: New Hope for Arthritis Sufferers
May 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
If the pain of arthritis in your big toe is part of your life, you’ll want to attend this informative discussion about a new and effective treatment. ONS orthopedic foot and anke surgeon, Dr. Sean Peden, has been successfully using a new synthetic implant that functions as the body’s own cartilage. Similar in texture to a contact lens, the implant allows the big toe to bend and bear weight in the same natural manner as a non-arthritic toe. Recovery from the minimally-invasive outpatient implant procedure is quicker and less painful than more traditional treatments. This material has been effective for other arthritic sites in the body overseas for a decade, but the FDA only approved its use for the big toe joint in July 2016.
