Meniscus Repair (Arthroscopic Technique)

Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Meniscus Repair (Arthroscopic Technique)

Each of your knee joints is cushioned by two c-shaped wedges of cartilage. The two cushions in each knee are called the "menisci." Individually, each cushion is called a "meniscus." Certain motions, such as twisting the knee, can cause a meniscus to tear. In many cases, a torn meniscus can be treated with arthroscopic surgery.
