Articular cartilage
Treatment and restoration

Medical Practice

Articular cartilage is the connective tissue covering the ends of bones where they come together to form joints. The main function of the articular cartilage is the reduction of the mechanical impact forces and bone protection. Due to direct injuries or recurring trauma this tissue may be damaged which requires treatment. Our team developed an articular cartilage treatment program comprising of three stages:

  1. Initial high-intensity laser therapy (HILT)
  2. The patented shape of the wave emitted by Hiro 3.0 laser generates high-intensity impulses (they can penetrate tissue up to 12 cm). They reduce pain and regenerate the affected articular cartilage

  3. Restoration of the articular cartilage
  4. The articular cartilage is restored through applications of one of the following substance combinations directly to the affected joint:
    • hyaluronic acid and collagen
    • hyaluronic acid and corticosteroide
    • platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and collagen
    • platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid
    • cultured stem cells

  5. Subsequent high-intensity laser therapy (HILT)
  6. Second treatment series with Hiro 3.0 laser is introduced in order to stimulate tissue's restoration and reinforcement of therapy's effects.
