- Primary and revision arthroplasties
- Sports traumatology
- Regenerative medicine
- Non-surgical treatment of osteoarthritis by plasma infiltrations

Extensive experience in joint prosthesis:
- Personalized knee prosthesis
- Journey II implant, the newest and most anatomical knee prosthesis
- Unicompartmental partial knee arthroplasty
- Revision arthroplasties – complex operations to replace the initial prosthesis
- Tumor arthroplasty of the knee
- Hip arthroplasty in young people by resurfacing Birmingham type and ceramic prostheses
- Arthroplasty with total hip replacement minimally invasive
For every stage of knee joint damage, we have solutions
Patients no longer have to accept the reversibility of knee joint injuries as a fact of life. At Ponderas Academic Hospital, we can offer our patients the most advanced surgical techniques, the results of which, in terms of benefits, are impressive.
Today we have solutions for every stage of knee joint damage. In patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, we can use a wide range of prosthetic surgeries, from the unicameral Oxford for partial osteoarthritis to the custom knee prosthesis and the Journey II implant for total knee arthroplasty, followed by revision surgery. and ending with a knee tumor prosthesis as an alternative to the radical amputation solution. ” – mentioned Dr. Vlad Predescu – Coordinator of the Department of Orthopedics and Sports Traumatology at Ponderas Academic Hospital.
Modern techniques for regenerating articular cartilage – delay the evolution over time to osteoarthritis
It treats complex chondral lesions, which cannot heal on their own, using the patient’s mesenchymal stem cells in the hematogenous marrow.
The AMIC (Autologous Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis) arthroscopic technique is a minimally invasive method, performed in a single stage (a single operation), through which the cartilage is biologically reconstructed, using the body’s own resources (pluripotent stem cells).
It is indicated in young patients, <55 years old and aims to produce high quality cartilage, delaying the evolution over time to osteoarthritis, which will invariably lead to the need for implantation of a knee prosthesis.
