The Episealer process

To ensure you receive the best possible treatment for your cartilage lesion, every step in the process focuses on you. First, an MRI scan of your knee is needed. This scan will then be used to compose a damage marking report, including a virtual 3D model of your knee joint. This 3D model will be the basis for the design of your individualised Episealer implant and surgical instrument kit.  Below you can read more about each step.

“My feeling when I woke up was: I have absolutely no pain”


This patient suffered from pain and swelling in her knee, which hampered her ability to work. She had a history of knee surgeries before the Episealer® surgery without satisfactory results. When she finally got her Episealer® implant, her pain went away instantly! Her knee no longer limits her from doing what she enjoys.
