  1. Unless the pain is severe avoid the debridement or intervals between them. I have been diagnosed countless times with chondro… since a MCL,Meniscus,ACL partial tear 15 years ago.I think in english it means rough patella surface w/swelling usually present. I highly recommend the expertise of your physical therapist before anything invasive. I have found over time the scar tissue from my past invasive procedures (about every 2-3 years since 16) has caused in my opinion more of a problem then before my debridemnts. I am very active in various sports and swear by PT’s as my preferred choice for strengthening and controlling pain from my past knee problems. Rob
