Osteochondral Allograft Transplant

A osteochondral allograft transplant is a procedure where knee cartilage and bone from a cadaver is transplanted into a patient. In a knee allograft, the damaged area is too large for an autograft, and is a possible option for younger patients versus a total knee replacement.

After the right donor is located as a match, a small incision is made, the damaged cartilage and bone removed, then replaced with the donor’s.
