meniscectomy & meniscal repair

A person with a torn meniscus often experiences pain, swelling, and difficulty with knee movement, impacting daily activities and sports participation. Treatment typically involves either a meniscectomy, where the damaged portion of the meniscus is removed, or a meniscal repair, aiming to preserve the tissue. At our facility, we prioritize comprehensive care throughout the recovery journey. Our expert team designs personalized rehabilitation plans, incorporating exercises, modalities, and gradual progression to promote healing and restore knee function. We provide guidance on activity modification, proper knee mechanics, and pain management strategies to optimize recovery. With our support, patients can navigate their recovery journey effectively and regain knee strength and mobility.

surgical procedure

Meniscectomy and meniscal repair are surgical procedures performed to address injuries or tears to the meniscus, the C-shaped cartilage in the knee joint that acts as a shock absorber and provides stability. Meniscectomy involves the partial or complete removal of the damaged meniscal tissue, typically performed using arthroscopic techniques to minimize trauma to surrounding structures. Alternatively, meniscal repair aims to preserve the meniscus by suturing the torn edges back together. This technique is particularly beneficial for younger patients or individuals with specific tear patterns amenable to repair. Both procedures aim to alleviate pain, restore knee function, and prevent the progression of degenerative changes within the knee joint.

during your rehab

After meniscectomy or meniscal repair, patients undergo physical therapy to restore knee strength, flexibility, and stability. Recovery times vary depending on the extent of the surgery, but most patients can resume light activities within a few weeks and return to sports or heavy labor within a few months.

recovery process

Recovery from meniscectomy or meniscal repair is generally quicker compared to other knee surgeries. Prognosis is typically good, especially for meniscal repairs where preservation of meniscal tissue is achieved. However, long-term outcomes may be influenced by factors such as the development of arthritis in the affected knee.
