I'm going out on a limb here hoping someone on this form might have some useful insight.
I have a third degree focal defect on my femoral condyle cartilage.
I'm on my third exploratory surgery which has gotten me nowhere at all.
Since the orthopeadists I have consulted say I am too young for a knee replacement, one doctor has suggested BST CarGel.
Its a compound which will "fill up" the hole in the cartilage and get me back to being normal..
Has Anyone here ever had this done or know of anyobody whos had this procedure?
Its a relatively new procedure, just accepted by Health Canada and which has been in experimentation for fifteen years.
I cant find any info on this procedure, except for what the manufacturer has to say.
Any info regarding this would be appreciated.
