Many different conditions can lead to painful joints. Even if the causes of pain is same, treatment should be differed according to a patient's age, joints shape and condition, and his(her) habits from lifestyle.
Jung Dong's Joint Clinic is concerned not only about joint problem, but also about the treatment for the patients who suffer from joint pain,
and furthermore about lifestyle improvement.

Major Treatment Method for Joint Clinic

Non-surgical treatment
  • Medication, Physical therapy, Exercise program for muscle strengthening
  • Injection for Cartilage protection : It is a direct injection into the joints to deliver the nutrients necessary for the cartilage in the joints.
Surgical treatment
  • Cartisem (Umbilical stem cell therapy) : It is a human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cell, which is used as treatment agent for injured articular cartilage regeneration.
  • Micro-perforation : It is a remedy for cartilage regeneration that removes damaged cartilage and then punches a fine hole to induce bone marrow stem cells to activate autologous cartilage regeneration.
  • Autograft cartilage transplantation : It is a cartilage regeneration therapy that takes some healthy cartilage instead of damaged cartilage and transplants it.
  • Correction osteotomy : It is a surgical procedure that can reduce the load applied to the painful site of knee joint by correcting the abnormal axis of the leg and reduce the pain.
  • Arthroscopy : Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure inspecting and treating joint diseasing by inserting a subminiature camera and instrument into the joint through very small incision.
  • Total Joint Replacement Arthroplasty : Arthroplasty deadens the pain and secures the motion range by replacing damaged joint region with harmless devices.
Sports clinic
  • Cruciate ligament reconstruction : It is possible to perform autogenous or allogenous tendon reconstruction with considerations of the patient's age, sex, and occupation. Depending on the type of graft, age, occupation, and sex of the patient, the rehabilitation process will vary. It will take at least six months to complete active sporting events after injury. For patients with mild to moderate (Grade 1 and 2) injuries, and if it was solitary injury, conservative management is enough as treatment. For patients with severe degree instability and for those with moderate Grade 2 injuries combined with multiple ligamentous injuries, reconstruction to prohibit further cartilage or meniscus injuries is necessary.
  • Meniscectomy or meniscus repair : Meniscal injury undergoes resection or repair depending on various factors including the location, pattern, and the size of the rupture. After a total resection of the meniscus, reports of the occurrence of arthritis may prompt then it needs meniscal transplantation. In addition, a tibial osteotomy (HTO, High Tibial Osteotomy) may be performed if the knee joint alignment is abnormal.
  • Acromioplasty, rotator cuff repair : Acromioplasty is the operation for widening of subacromial space to reduce shoulder impingement. When rotator cuff is torn it should be repaired. If not, it goes retracted and the tear size will be widened. In case of too severely retracted cuff tear, so it’s impossible to repair, reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is performed.

We think Arthroplasty surgery is the last resort.
Therefore, it is recommended to perform the arthroplasty surgery when symptoms persist even treated with various non-surgical treatment or other surgical treatment, etc.
