Breakthrough Treatment for ACL Injuries

Currently in clinical trials, Martha Murray’s ACL surgical repair technique allows the torn ACL to heal itself by using a bridge, or scaffold, to hold blood products between the two torn ends of the ACL long enough for surrounding cells to grow into and reunite the separated ends.

Treating Post-Traumatic Osteoarthritis

This team has developed a drug delivery system that releases – from inside the joint - an injected drug in response to osteoarthritis, while providing pain relief and potentially preventing joint degeneration. Note: Joerg Ermann, MD, has replaced Antonios Ailprantis, MD, PhD, on this project.
