Knee arthroscopy involves a surgeon making a small incision in the knee to insert a camera into the joint. Using this camera, the surgeon can diagnose and repair a torn meniscus.
There are two types of surgery: meniscus repair and a meniscectomy. During a meniscus repair, pieces of the damaged meniscus are sewn together to help encourage healing. A meniscectomy involves the removal of the torn portion of the meniscus while leaving the healthy tissue intact.
Your NJ Spine and Wellness surgeon will work with you to determine which treatment option is right for you.
