Young patients with knee disorder can get active with cellular graftingAdam Vasser of Los Altos, California, was an active kid with a flair for baseball until one day when his heart was attacked by a mysterious virus requiring a need for a heart transplant. He underwent steroid treatment in the long term for preventing rejection of transplant leaving him to lead his life with osteonecrosis, an excruciating knee disorder.

Now at 23 and undergoing 15 knee and heart surgeries, he is back to play baseball again, all due to a new technique known as cellular grafting.

The 60-minute surgery, known as osteoprogenitor cellular grafting, involved scooping out the dead bone and thereafter filing the space in with a new cellular matter. It was theorized by Goodman that use of bone cells is better than using traditional bone grafting for these kinds of cases. A longer-term follow-up study with a larger number of patients was recommended by Goodman, an orthopedic surgeon Stuart Goodman, MD, PhD.
