Introduction to The Subchondroplasty® Procedure
The SCP® Procedure is a minimally-invasive surgery that targets and fills subchondral bone defects, often referred to as Bone Marrow Lesions (BML). These often-painful defects are in the spongy cancellous bone that underlies the cortical bone. The procedure is usually performed along with arthroscopy ("scoping") of the nearby joint, allowing your surgeon to visualize and treat findings inside the joint.
Important Information: As with every surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications. Individual results may vary. Success depends on factors such as age, weight and activity level.
