The Difference Is Moving.

MOVEMENT MATTERS, SO ASK YOUR DOCTOR FOR CARTIVA® SCI.

Preserved Motion

Unlike fusion surgery, CARTIVA® SCI reduces pain without sacrificing movement.1

Quick Procedure

Implanting CARTIVA® SCI is 40% faster than the alternative fusion surgery.2

Smooth Recovery

No casts or crutches. Patients can typically bear weight immediately after receiving CARTIVA® SCI.2

LONG TERM RESULTS

CARTIVA® SCI is proven to provide long-term pain reduction and increased foot mobility, with 97% reduction in pain demonstrated at almost six years post-procedure.
