Meniscus Tear – Treatment and Surgery in Wayne, Parsippany & Paramus, NJ
Injury to the meniscus, which is a wedge-shaped cartilage disc in the knee that cushions and absorbs shock.
The meniscus is a wedge-shaped cartilage disc in the knee that cushions and absorbs shock between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). Meniscus tears can occur acutely from direct contact or a twisting injury, or they can occur due to degenerative changes over time. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness, a catching or locking sensation, weakness, or a “giving way” sensation. Your doctor can often make this diagnosis in the office but may order some advanced imaging such as an MRI to visualize the location and extent of the tear. Conservative treatment typically consists of the RICE protocol (rest, ice, compression, elevation), NSAIDs and/or physical therapy. If your symptoms persist or the knee is unstable, surgical intervention to either debride or repair the affected meniscus may be necessary. See our “Treatments” section for more information.
