Torn Meniscus Surgery
Torn meniscus repair
Pain and injuries of the knee are a burden because they affect your ability to move about and perform daily activities. There are many types of knee injuries since the knee is made up of several parts, including muscle, ligaments, bones and cartilage. Some of these are mild and can be treated with rest and medication. Others require medical attention.
One knee injury that affects many people is a torn meniscus. The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that rests between the shin and thigh bones that your knee connects together. There are two menisci in the knee: one in the front of the knee and the other on the backside. They are separated by the ligaments intersecting your knee.
When one or both of the menisci are torn, you may not be able to use your knee or leg. When this happens, you should visit a medical professional for treatment.
