A meniscectomy is a minimally invasive surgery which is typically performed when the patient has a torn meniscus, which is a common knee injury. A meniscectomy is a type of surgery which is used to treat a torn or damaged meniscus. A meniscus is a structure made of cartilage which helps the knee to work properly. Minor meniscus tears are likely to heal on their own without surgery, but more severe tears often require surgical repair.
Arthroscopic meniscus surgery is the most advanced procedure for meniscus repair as it leads to a quicker recovery with less down time from daily activities.
