Professor Sally Roberts was interviewed by The Times about the success of the ACI research and treatment at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry; research that is part-funded by Versus Arthritis.
The article describes the case study of a 29 year old personal trainer with osteoarthritis in her knee, who, following the ACI treatment said “I was up and walking the day after my operation and have been staggered at how quickly I recovered. The ACI op has completely turned my life around.”
Professor Roberts said that the treatment “can make a big difference in delaying the onset of osteoarthritis, particularly in younger people who have small areas of cartilage damage.” She described that “with ACI it is a biological repair and the tissue should last as long as the cartilage you were born with.”
