Regen as is popularly being called is nothing but allowing a failed growth or aiding in healing a portion of cartilage surface that is damaged early in life. This is most commonly due to injury in sports or accidents which cause damage to the cartilage.
A portion of cartilage is removed surgically and then sent to a laboratory where the cartilage is grown in a controlled envionment for about 4 to 6 weeks.
The so called “magical regenerative cells” are packaged and layered over the damaged surface of the cartilage.
Its as simple as that. However it is not suggested for those who are older than 60 years. Now one may ask who is the right person? The answer can be best understood with a direct interaction with the surgeon.
