Hadassah University Medical Center on Jerusalem’s Mount Scopus successfully performed knee surgery using a new coral-based implant created by Israeli startup CartiHeal, a Kfar Saba-based startup founded by Nir Altschuler in 2009 which focuses on regenerative medicine. The implant, Agili-C, is being tested with consented patients around the world, and to date over 70 patients have been treated with the implant.
