Meniscus Repair

Meniscus Repair Surgery

A damaged or torn cartilage (meniscus) in the knee can cause an inability to bend or fully straighten the knee, and usually requires surgery to repair it. Surgical options include room removing the torn meniscus (a partial meniscectomy) or performing a meniscus repair to place the edges together with sutures or tacks.
