Dr. Bailie has performed Carticel Autogenous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI) (Cartilage transplant) for cartilage defects in the knee and other joints.

The process has been available since 1996 when he participated in his first transplant in a professional athlete. Although only FDA approved for use in the knee, the ACI procedure has been used “off label” by Dr. Bailie and others in multiple joints, including the shoulder, ankle and elbow.
