Treatment

The therapy lies within

Cartilage damage in the knee and ankle joint and slipped discs considerably increase the risk of the degeneration of the affected tissue.
Early treatment is required if these degenerative processes are to be avoided, treatments capable of reconstructing the damaged tissue.
Depending on the size of the cartilage defect, a range of treatment options are available in knee and ankle joint interventions (microfracturing, mosaic plastics, ACT). A new method is now available for the treatment of slipped discs, one that can prevent loss in height of the intervertebral disc and with it increasing segment loosening:
ADCT (“Autologous Disc Cell Transplantation”)

ACT and ADCT are cell-based procedures used in regenerative medicine, characterized essentially by three steps: 
 

1. Extraction of a small piece of tissue (biopsy)

2. Laboratory cultivation of the cells extracted

3. Transplantation of the cells to the defect area

To ensure that the cultivated cells are capable of regenerating the corresponding tissue, it is extremely important to check their quality (cell phenotype) immediately prior to transplantation. For this reason, for every implant we perform validated cellular and molecular biological quality controls using state-of-the-art analytical methods, informing the treating physician in writing about the quality of the cells to be transplanted. Our development team has been honored with a prestigious science award for outlining the scientific principles of a newly developed method for significantly increasing the quality of transplanted cartilage cells. This is our way of ensuring that you receive only vital and functioning cell implants from us and your doctor.
