Meniscus Cartilage Management And Meniscus Repair

Meniscus tears are relatively common sports-related injuries and occur in the cartilage discs around the knee joint. The injuries often occur as a result of sudden twists or stretches during exercise. In some cases, it is not possible to repair tears and partial ressection of the meniscus might be necessary to manage any uncomfortable symptoms. Sometimes, however, the injury can be repaired surgically. I am able to perform meniscus repair arthroscopically, a procedure in which I will insert an arthroscope into the knee and use stitches to repair the tear, depending on the nature of the injury.
