Founded in: Jan 16, 2017

It was founded on the 18th of February 2010, as a Committee of the Mexican College of Orthopedics and Traumatology, located in the World Trade Center of Mexico City, with 60 members affiliated, including different specialties related to the field of chondral repair such as: Orthopedics, Rehabilitation Medicine, Rheumatology, Radiology, Sport Medicine, Biology, Veterinary Medicine and others.

 

The cartilage chapter has its bimestrial sessions, in which it has been discussed new strategies for the treatment of OA in young patients. During the third ordinary session we had the visit and Master Conference of Lisa Fortier M.D the current president of the ICRS in that moment, which it actually help counseled this emerging group. Every session has been transmitted in real time by internet, which allows anyone to join us in the interior of the country, as well as other countries, where we have followers like Chile, Panama Colombia and Brazil.

We have also realized two cadaveric work shops specific for chondral repair, the first of its kind in Latin America, in which it has been revised techniques from basic to advance, such as microfracture, mosaicoplasty and matrix arthroscopic implantation.

Mission

The mission and objectives of this Chapter are shared with those proposed in the ICRS.

We are a team of multidisciplinary study that our final objective is to prevent de progression of chondral injury towards Osteoarthritis (OA) and its devastating consequences in our population.

Past activities

In the recent Annual Meeting of the ICRS celebrated in Sitges 2010, we had a scientific participation of 8 free papers accepted. We were able to receive the support from the industry, Genzyme Mexico, by giving us 8 scholarships for those members of the chapter of cartilage to assist that meeting.

In April of 2011, we will have the first Specialty Day of Cartilage Worldwide, during the National Meeting of Orthopedic and Traumatology, with the confirmed assistance of professors of international quality such as Dr. Laslo Hangody, Dr. Kai Mithoefer and Dr.Simon Gortz as well as a high level local faculty like Dr. Clemente Ibarra.

We are in continuing growth and we are thankful to the ICRS, in particularly to the recent created committee of Developing Regions for the support granted to our Cartilage Committee. We will be informing our advances, and looking forward in the near future to expand this study group of cartilage repair towards Latin America. Greetings.
