Meniscus Tear

Meniscus Tear

The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides cushioning between the thigh bone and the shin bone in the knee joint. There are two menisci in each knee, and they play a vital role in the proper functioning of the knee joint.

A meniscus tear can occur due to twisting injuries or repetitive loads on the knee joint. If you’ve experienced a meniscus tear, you may experience symptoms such as pain, swelling, locking, or catching in the knee. It’s essential to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the knee joint.



Treatment options for meniscus tears may vary depending on the extent of the injury. Some treatment options include:

  • Oral Medications: Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications can help manage the pain and swelling associated with a meniscus tear.
  • Bracing: A knee brace can help provide support and stability to the knee joint during physical activities.
  • Injections: Corticosteroid injections can help reduce pain and inflammation in the knee joint.
  • Therapy: Physical therapy can help improve knee function, reduce pain, and prevent further injury.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or remove the damaged meniscus.

“Dr. Matt Davis from my initial visit to my follow up visit after surgery has been excellent. He spent the time with me with all my questions about my shoulder surgery and I never felt rushed. He showed and explained the details about how the surgery would progress and the post surgery details. His staff is excellent and professional. Dr Davis mended my shoulder back together with precision and care and I will be back to 100% with confidence very soon! Thanks Davis Orthopedics!”
