Meniscus repair

Meniscal repairs are arthroscopically performed in young people on tears near the outer third of the meniscus where a good blood supply exists or on large tears that would require a near-total resection.

The torn portion of the meniscus is repaired by using sutures that join the torn edges of the meniscus so they can heal.

Full weight bearing (crutches) is not permitted for 3 to 6 weeks after surgery, depending on the type of repair.

If the meniscus does not heal (persitent pain, mechanical symptoms), its removal may be necessary.
