OrthoGlide® Medial Knee Implant

In this outpatient procedure, the surgeon inserts a thin metal implant to resurface lost or moderately damaged cartilage on the inner side of the knee joint, called the medial compartment. The implant can be used to replace articular cartilage, which covers the ends of the knee bones, and also fibrous meniscal cartilage, which creates a cushion between the bones.
