BioPoly presents an alternative to extreme surgical treatments for cartilage defects. These state-of-the-art treatments have been developed to aid people suffering from life-inhibiting pain. However, not all patients—many, in fact—are not good candidates for the biological treatments and artificial replacements. For these patients, BioPoly presents an alternative. The BioPoly™ ReSurfacing devices provide the option for those neither able to receive effective biological treatments nor in need of a total replacement. The patented, self-lubricating material, BioPoly™ ReSurfacing devices are designed to replace only the affected area of the cartilage. The less invasive procedure allows for a shorter recovery time.
