MACI is a procedure that repairs cartilage using the patient’s own cells. MACI provides long-lasting pain relief and improvement in function.1
How does MACI work?
A sample of your cartilage cells (chondrocytes) is sent to a laboratory and embedded on a special collagen membrane which your doctor then implants into your knee. The cartilage cells regenerate, forming a repair tissue that is able to fill the cartilage defect.
