It is new concept. Where instead of replacing the damaged joint, we regenerate the cartilage in the joint to have a healthy joint and to postpone joint replacement. In certain instances, joint regeneration has alleviated the need fot joint replacement. Steroids intraarticular injection are also administered.
Two common forms of joint regeneration:
- PRP therapy
- Hyaluronic acid injection
Steroids intraarticular injection are also administered. But it suppresses the joint inflammation but has no role in regeneration.
