About this procedure

Meniscal tears are among the most common knee injuries.  The risk of injuring the meniscus is particularly high for athletes, especially those who participate in contact sports, such as football, or activities that involve pivoting, such as tennis or basketball. However, anyone at any age can tear a meniscus.

An arthroscopic meniscal repair procedure involves suturing the torn meniscus together with suture and/or anchors or excising it depending on the size, type and location of the tear (bucket handle, flap, horizontal, longitudinal, radial, or degenerative).
