How MACI Works
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.
After MACI is implanted, you will begin a physician-prescribed rehabilitation program specifically designed for you.
MACI should not be used in patients who cannot follow a doctor-prescribed rehabilitation program after their surgery.
