Quality meniscus repair involves preserving healthy tissue.
With knee arthroscopy, a meniscus tear can be completed through only a small incision. Since knee health is preserved by protecting the healthy cartilage, precise surgical techniques make a world of difference.
- In a partial meniscectomy, the damaged tissue is trimmed away
- Some repairs can be made by suturing torn pieces together
- Rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the knee are added gradually
- Patients often return to their pre-injury activity level and activities
You don't have to trust your knee's health to just anyone.
Our medical team is diversely trained and committed to helping patients of all activity levels reach their full potential.
Meniscus tears are among the most common knee injuries.
You have two menisci in each knee--the medial and the lateral. This cartilage acts as a shock absorber, protecting your lower leg. The injury is often caused by sudden twisting or turning while bearing weight, and is especially common in athletes. Symptoms include:
- Inability to fully extend your knee joint
- Pain, typically on the inside or outside of the knee
- Locking or “catching” of the knee
