Cartilage transplantation for knee injuries subject of upcoming lecture

October 23, 2013 (Greenwich, CT) – Damage to the knee’s cartilage caused by a sports or other traumatic injury to the knee can lead to pain, swelling, locking and decreased mobility. Cartilage transplantation offers new options for adults under the age of 50, who have had a specific knee injury but do not have arthritis.

This month, Greenwich Hospital will present “Helping Knees with New Cartilage,” a lecture featuring Demetrios Delos, MD. Dr. Delos, a sports medicine specialist and orthopedic surgeon, will discuss the transplant process and explain the criteria used to determine who is a candidate for the surgery.

“Helping Knees with New Cartilage”
• Tuesday, Oct. 29
• 6:30-8 pm
• Greenwich Hospital’s Noble Conference Center
• 5 Perryridge Rd., Greenwich, CT
