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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
