Meniscal Scaffolds Regenerating the shock absorbers in the knee

The Meniscal Scaffold implant is a new device designed to rebuild the meniscus or ‘footballer’s cartilage’ after part of it has been removed following injury. This procedure of partial meniscectomy is very common and is usually successful in relieving pain. However a small proportion of patients will develop persistent pain felt in the side of the knee due to the lack of the normal thickness of the meniscus.
