Cartilage Transplant Allows John Golden to Attempt Mount Everest Climb

Insurance executive and avid mountain climber John Golden was told that his knee pain would ground him forever. An old college football injury had wreaked havoc on Golden's knees. By his late 30s, the cartilage in the knee was destroyed.

Before opting for a knee replacement, he decided to consult with MOR orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Brian Cole. Dr. Cole, pioneer in cartilage restoration procedures, performed a cartilage transplant on Golden's damaged knee. Now pain free, Golden has started intense training to prepare for his attempt to scale Mount Everest this spring.
