Kevin Stone, MD   Orthopedic Surgeon, The Stone Clinic

Biologic Joint Replacement
The Future of Joint Replacement Surgery

Thursday, April 4, 2013


Kevin R Stone, MD has pioneered new ways to address biologic as opposed to bionic (artificial) joint replacement. He and his clinic (The Stone Clinic in San Francisco) developed the first collagen scaf- fold for re-growing the meniscus cartilage, the first techniques for replacing the meniscus in an arthritic knee, the first method to humanize animal tissue for use as ligaments in ACL replacement, the first stem cell cartilage paste graft for re-growing articular cartilage inside injured joints, and the first glucosamine beverage for joint health. His work has led to multiple awards, publications, grants, approximately 50 issued US patents and initiated multiple start-up companies. As an orthopaedic surgeon, he has served the U.S. Ski Team, the U. S. Pro Ski Tour, the Marin Ballet, the Smuin Ballet, the modern Pentathlon at the U.S. Olympic Festival, and for the U.S. Olympic Training Center. He was trained at Harvard in internal medicine and orthopaedic surgery and at Stanford in general surgery.
