Cartilage defects and osteoarthritis are acknowledged as a disease of the entire osteocartilaginous unit, rather than a disorder limited to the surface cartilage alone.

In this live webinar our panel of experts will present their experiences with a novel nanostructured biomimetic scaffold for treatment of OCL and OCD in the knee joint, including case presentations, clinical evidence and surgical technique and patient selection.
By the end of this educational presentation delegates should be able to:
