MACI uses your own cells to create durable repair tissue for knee cartilage
damage and can:

  • Reduce pain
  • Improve function
  • Provide lasting results

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.


FROM YOUR CELLS TO MACI: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

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.
