Can You Regrow Cartilage?

Can damaged cartilage grow back?

Doctor's response

In humans, there is essentially no repair of natural cartilage that has been injured.  With deep cartilage injury, there can be a scar cartilage that forms.  This scar cartilage is not the same quality of natural cartilage.

There is no medication or food supplement that promotes the re-growth of cartilage.
