On behalf of the ICRS, we would like to invite you to the the Focus Meeting entitled “One Step Cartilage Repair” that will be held in Rome from June 5 to 7, 2019. We are excited over an innovative faculty, which combines Clinicians and Scientists, all leaders in the field of cartilage repair. They will offer participants a complete overview of every possible single one-step treatment for focal cartilage defects, from marrow stimulation to the latest advances in orthobiologics, regenerative medicine and focal resurfacing. The two-day meeting will be completed by an optional half day interactive practical workshop on associated surgical treatments such as femoral, tibial and patella-femoral osteotomies, meniscus transplant, bone marrow aspiration and stem cell withdrawal.
