Cell therapy for cartilage defects: Aaron Krych, M.D.

By Jennifer Schutz

Aaron Krych, M.D., Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon and recipient of a 2018 Regenerative Medicine Research Grant, is researching the initial safety and feasibility of RECLAIM, a single stage cartilage repair technique using the patient’s own cartilage cells and allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells.  The study will assess the patient’s improvement in pain and function following the procedure, while actively monitoring safety and adverse events.

Dr. Krych is a professor of orthopedics and a consultant in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic. His clinical research interests include ACL and meniscus injuries, cartilage restoration and transplantation, hip labral tears and athletic injuries, and arthroscopic treatment of femeroacetabular impingement.
