Research:

Dr. Mansmann's research is focused on the clinical need for a durable, minimally invasive pre-arthroplasty solution to treat arthritis and joint cartilage damage. The flexible shape-memory ArthoPad implants are designed to resurface damaged cartilage surfaces through Arthroscopic Surgery, eliminating the significant loss of bone that is unavoidable in Traditional Joint Replacement surgeries. ArthroPad has revolutionary and transformative potential as a less invasive pre-arthroplasty clinical treatment option. The clinical application being end-stage arthritis or joint damage, before bone deformity, earlier in the disease process, thereby reducing the need for joint replacement surgery.

Current research focus is arthroscopic joint resurfacing with flexible implants, reproducing the functional micro-anatomy/structure of hyaline cartilage as a synovial fluid interactive bearing surface.
