Meniscal Procedures

Meniscal Repair:

The meniscus is a crucial shock-absorber in the knee joint. Certain rare types of meniscal tears can be repaired with sutures, rather than cut out.

Meniscal Transplantation:

If a very large meniscal tear is present and cannot be repaired, it can be removed and replaced with a donor meniscus. This procedure can improve pain and function while potentially slowing down the development of arthritis.
