Emerging treatments such as orthobiologics, advanced hip arthroscopy, cartilage restoration, meniscus transplantation, and osteotomy techniques can help adults and adolescents with pre-arthritic conditions regain full function," said Chilelli.

For this patient, in the field of the orthodontic and orthognathic surgery approach, there were two treatment options, namely surgically-assisted rapid palatal expansion followed by fixed orthodontic treatment and final double jaw orthognathic surgery or orthodontic decompensation followed by double jaw surgery with multipiece Le Fort I osteotomy. Our patient's maxillary constriction was in the physiological limits of the multipiece Le Fort I procedure; therefore, to avoid possible complications of the second surgery, we preferred maxillary expansion and repositioning with a multipiece surgical intervention.
