A meniscus tear is a common knee joint injury. Meniscus Injury Treatment is highly dependent on the extent and location of the tear, level of pain, patient's age and activity level and finally the time of injury. Meniscus Injury can be treated in both non-surgical as well as meniscus surgery methods. The non-surgical methods include rest, ice, compression and elevation, coupled with physical therapy. In most of the cases, it requires the patient to wear a temporary knee brace. Meniscus surgery includes surgical repair where the meniscus tear is sewn together, partial meniscectomy which involves removal of torn meniscus and finally, total meniscectomy involving removal of entire meniscus. Arthroscopy is the preferred method of meniscus surgery by orthopaedics. The meniscus tear can be repaired if the tear is longitudinal whereas the radial tears can be repaired depending on the tear's location. Oblique or horizontal tears cannot be repaired. Based on the meniscus's ability to heal, as well as your age, health, and activity level, orthopaedic surgeons who perform meniscectomies will make surgical decisions based on the strength as well as the tear of meniscus. Rehabilitation time for a meniscus repair is approximately 3 months. A meniscectomy requires approximately 3 to 4 weeks to heal. Meniscus tears are extremely common knee injuries and with proper diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, patients often return to their pre-injury abilities.
