What is Meniscus Repair?
Also known as meniscal repair, meniscus repair is a type of orthopedic surgery that repairs cartilage tears in the knee. The meniscus is a piece of cartilage made up of two separate disks; one called the medial meniscus and the other the lateral meniscus. The meniscus cartilage acts like a shock absorber that distributes weight evenly across the knee joint. Tears to the meniscus or cartilage often occur from twisting movements when the knee goes one way and the foot goes the other, such as occurs in skiing, tennis, or many contact sports.
