Meniscus Injury

Diagnosis And Treatment

Procedures
Arthroscopy may be used to assess the extent of the damage and repair the injured meniscus when possible. When repair is not possible the torn portion of the meniscus is removed—thus the term "partial meniscectomy." Unfortunately, many knees that lose meniscal function will be at risk for developing degenerative changes over time. If symptoms occur after loss of meniscus then there are options of restoring meniscal function through meniscal transplantation or possibly scaffolding techniques.

Maintain a healthy weight and remember to check with your doctor before beginning any sport or exercise routine.
