The path to osteoarthritis is reversible

The Gelenk Klinik, as a leading centre in Germany with more than 700 procedures of autologous cartilage transplant, applies 3rd generation Chondrosphere Technology: No animal, synthetic or 3rd party serum is used. Only the patient´s own blood serum is required.

Patients benefitting from the regeneration of their cartilage with autologous cartilage transplantation, can enjoy something that no generation before them was able to experience: enhanced agility, flexibility and overall knee performance.

Chondrosphere Technology developed by Codon AG. This approach successfully regenerates cartilage cells without the use of animal serum, synthetic or any other third party components. Only the patient's own blood serum is used for the procedure.
