How is Meniscus Tear treated?

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. Older people are more likely to have degenerative meniscus tears. Cartilage weakens and wears thin over time.


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


Symptoms of a Meniscus Tear

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

What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy involves a surgeon using a small scope (camera) to look within your knee. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure allows an orthopedic surgeon to view the knee joint through three tiny incisions Once incisions are made, the surgeon uses the small camera, called an arthroscope, to guide tiny surgical instruments throughout the joint. While using this tool, the surgeon diagnoses and treats your condition in one quick procedure.
