Changing Healthcare 

Cartilage forms the gliding surface in every joint and it's health is key to long term preservation.  Our ROCKSTAR cartilage platform is there to help prevent cartilage issues degrading into arthritis.  

A pioneering technique is to replace a patient's damaged joint surface with donated living cartilage - our partner JRFOrtho is the world leader in the provision of fresh allograft, Joint Operations are the UK's main provider.

This video shows the technique and offers advice to clinicians working to #savethejoint
