Researchers at Sechenov Medical University have developed cartilage restoring technology. Articular cartilage is a joint’s weak point wheredegenerative changes begin. Osteoarthrosis is a serious disease that almost 10 percent of the world’s population suffers from. 

To address this, Sechenov University is implementing a new treatment: restoring the cartilage instead of replacing the joint with an artificial one.
