What is a meniscus tear?

Meniscus is a ligament present between the knee joint that helps in maintaining knee mobility. When the meniscus gets torn because of any reason, the movement of the knee becomes restricted and results in pain while walking and bending knees. Typically, a meniscus tear occurs due to sports injury, awkward or sudden falls, osteoarthritis, etc.

Meniscus Tear Treatment

Diagnosis of a torn Meniscus  

An orthopedic doctor will conduct a physical examination. The examination is done to assess the severity of the condition. During the physical examination, the doctor checks the tenderness by putting slight pressure with a finger around the affected area. The doctor may also recommend a few diagnostic tests to get clear images of the damaged tissues and bone around the knee joint. The following are some imaging tests that can be advised-

  • MRI
  • X-Ray

Meniscus Surgery in Lucknow 

Meniscus repair surgery is also known as Meniscectomy. The first step of the surgery takes place when an anesthetist administers anesthesia to make the area numb and in order to prepare it for surgery. Once the surgical site gets numb, an orthopedic surgeon will make a few tiny incisions to proceed with the determined meniscus repair surgery. The surgeon uses surgical instruments and puts them through the incisions to sew the meniscus tear or to remove the partially damaged meniscus from the affected knee joint. Once the surgery is completed, the surgical site is secured with a bandage to avoid any post-surgical complications. 

You can visit our orthopedic doctor in Lucknow and nearby cities such as DelhiGurgaonNoidaFaridabad,  Ghaziabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore to undergo meniscus surgery at Pristyn Care.
