Mr Jamil is the first Consultant to have performed this procedure within the NHS in the Northwest of England.
He performs this procedure in both his private & NHS practise and remains one of the advisory surgeons for the company who manufacture this implant.
On occasions a small part of the cartilage within the knee joint can be damaged in isolation. Therefore, only this small area needs to be addressed. If not suitable for cartilage regeneration procedures or if this treatment has been previously performed and now exceeded its duration or has failed the chondral resurfacing can be considered. The procedure is less invasive than partial knee replacement and more bone preserving.
If you are suitable for this, an MRI scan of your knee shall be arranged. Equipment specific to the damage in your knee shall be made including a chondral resurfacing implant that can be fixed into your knee to cover the damaged area of cartilage.
