Welcome to Overtime with the Sports Docs. On each of these mini episodes, we chat about a new topic or surgical technique in the field of sports medicine. We’ll give you our quick take on the indications, various surgical approaches and overview of the outcomes.
On today’s episode, we’re going to chat about a relatively new surgical treatment for cartilage injury of the knee called Matrix-Induced Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation or MACI for short. Now, while this episode will focus primarily on the MACI procedure, we will be releasing a bigger episode in a couple of weeks that goes through all of the different surgical treatments for knee cartilage disease. We’ll be joined by an awesome guest for that one, so be sure to subscribe to our podcast and keep your eyes peeled for that two-part episode coming soon.
