What is Meniscus Repair?

This is a solution if your cartilage is damaged or torn. Meniscus provides cushion from the bone and avoid stress on the joint.  You may have the following symptoms: pain, swelling, not able to move you knee on a full range, and some others. Our surgeons will go into surgery, and repair the damage cartilage. There are many types of cartilages tears longitudinal, flap, normal, transverse, and torn horn. Doctors treat meniscal tears depending on the type of tear, and they will start with nonsurgical treatment. If you don’t improve your best option is the Meniscus Repair surgery. Our doctors at Family Hospital are board certified; please contact our case manager for more information.

How Meniscus repair is performed at Family Hospital? The procedure can be performed both by open surgery or arthroscopy. This will depend on your medical records and the recommendation of our surgeons once he inserts the small camara to see the inside of your knee and its surrounding areas ( Cartilage, bone, tendons). Your surgery will consist of both regional blockage and general anesthesia. The surgeon sutures the torn pieces, and repairs the torn. This may take more time to recover because the pieces have to heal all together.
