Continually Thankful

12/2/13: I am continually thankful. Just learned today that the companion study to my work over the years on treating large osteochondral defects of the knee joint will be published.

“The long term clinical outcomes following autogenous bone grafting for large volume defects of the knee: 12 to 21 year follow-up.” has been accepted for publication in Cartilage.

This is companion report to the following citation of the previous published study on the biological response of such a surgical treatment.
