    Joint health becomes more important because of the wear and tear experienced by joints as part of the natural aging process. UK Orthopaedic Surgery offers a variety of comprehensive operative and nonoperative services to treat joint disorders and injuries. The Center for Cartilage Repair and Restoration offers cartilage repair and replacement techniques that can improve your mobility and quality of life while prolonging the need for a partial or total joint replacement.
