Articular cartilage injuries can be very challenging. The challenge is to get an active patient back to sports or activities. This presentation will not address arthritic knees, but will instead focus on patients with a localized articular cartilage defect and how to develop an effective rehabilitation program.

ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 2 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).
20 min Obstacles to cartilage repair & rehabilitation concepts
25 min Specific surgical procedures and corresponding rehabilitation principles
10 min Patient demonstration
Certificate of Completion
Upon successful completion of this webinar, the participants will be able to:
- Discuss & develop a non-operative rehabilitation program for patients with articular cartilage lesions
- Demonstrate and illustrate various surgical procedures for isolated articular cartilage lesions
- Develop a post-operative evidence-based rehabilitation program for specific articular cartilage surgical procedures
Upon completion, the participant will be able to:
- Distinguish 5 characteristics that qualify a patient as an ideal candidate for the restorative, surgical intervention of an articular cartilage defect.
- Design a rehabilitation program for a patient recovering from a micro fracture surgery.
- Compare 2 similarities and 1 difference in the rehabilitation protocols of a patient with an articular cartilage lesion that have undergone a micro fracture or OATS procedure versus an ACI.
- Defend the rationale of a slow recovery following an articular cartilage defect.
