Cartilage Repair Device Technology – United States

Today's techniques for treating chondral or osteochondral defects commonly include microfracture and transplantation procedures. These techniques typically provide temporary relief, however, concerns remain about limited graft availability, morbidity at the autograft donor site, graft hypertrophy, the need for multiple surgical interventions and excessive cost. These current techniques, though beneficial in temporarily reducing pain, cannot be considered long-term solutions.

Developing cartilage repair technologies

DSM is developing technologies to address these deficiencies. Significant preclinical research and development using our proprietary biomaterial technologies has yielded promising designs. Preclinical studies have been conducted with some of the premier academic institutes in the US.
