What is a Meniscus Tear?

Between your thighbone and shinbone are two pieces of cartilage, known as meniscus. They act as shock-absorbers which help cushion your knee joint and keep the knee stable. Direct contact or twisting the knee in the wrong manner can cause a tear to the meniscus.

Symptoms of a Meniscus Tear

Pain and swelling
Catching or locking
Discomfort while walking
Some people even feel a “pop” when the injury occurs

How is Meniscus Tear Treated?

To completely restore knee stability, an orthopedic surgeon will need to surgically repair the meniscus during an outpatient knee arthroscopy procedure.
