Meniscal Repair

Meniscal Repair

Patients turn to Ortho Sports & Spine Physicians for minimally invasive treatments for knee injuries. Our certified orthopedic surgeons are known for staying at the forefront of sports medicine with their cutting-edge treatments and arthroscopic techniques. When it comes to a meniscal tear or other complex knee damage, you can trust us for the highest level of expertise.

This “c” shaped piece of cartilage forms a buffer between the thighbone and shinbone to protect your knee joint. If it is injured it cannot repair itself and arthroscopic surgery may be needed. We will conduct a thorough examination to determine if you are a candidate for knee arthroscopy to repair your meniscus. We may recommend a partial meniscectomy or meniscus repair depending your specific case. Both procedures can be performed arthroscopically, using small incisions that result in less scarring and a faster recovery time.

Causes of Meniscal Tear

The knee is one of the most complex joints in your body and it is responsible for supporting the most weight. Consequently, your knee is more susceptible to injury. A meniscal tear is a common knee injury that typically occurs during contact sports.

A meniscus can tear during inner rotation of the femur bone on the tibia with the knee in a partially bending position. It is not uncommon for a meniscus tear to be accompanied by an ACL injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we repair all types of knee joint injuries with the latest technology and techniques that sports medicine has to offer.

If you suffer from knee pain, tenderness, swelling, limited range of motion or joint locking, please contact our office today for a consultation. With our state-of-the-art facility and a team of top-ranked physicians, we can help you return to the level of sports performance you desire.

The Relationship Between Rowing Machines And Knee Pain

The unpredictable Georgia weather in December can force you to choose a form of exercise that can not be dependent upon the weather.
