About

ChondroGenesis, Inc. was founded for the purpose of bringing a new, non-invasive process to market for the treatment of ear cartilage shape disorders. ChondroGenesis has developed a non-surgical process to produce new soft cartilage, which is allowed to heal in the desired shape using a comfortably-designed proprietary system. This uniquely new process, called Cartilaze™, is used to correct ear deformations, which are currently being corrected via complex surgical methods. ChondroGenesis will market Cartilaze to medical professionals world wide.

The Cartilaze process is non-invasive, requiring no anesthesia and eliminating all the downsides associated with current techniques. It is completely painless, with no side effects or downtime and can be performed by a nurse or Medical Assistant, freeing the time of the surgeon, which would allow additional revenue generation. The Cartilaze process is effective in treating 80% of all ear deformations. ChondroGenesis has completed and published a number of clinical studies demonstrating the efficacy of Cartilaze. Publications are available upon request.
