Meniscal tears can occur for many reasons. Symptoms usually consist of knee pain with popping or locking. When conservative treatments fail, a knee arthroscopy is recommended to repair or remove a torn meniscus.
Knee arthroscopy for meniscal tears is a proven surgical procedure with predictable results and relatively low risk. The majority of patients gain significant if not total improvement in their symptoms as a result of this procedure.
Now that you have viewed the presentation, it is your doctor's hope that you have a better understanding of the procedure, including its risks, benefits and alternatives. Based on your desires and expectations, you and your doctor can now make a shared decision about your health care.
