The meniscus is a rubbery, c-shaped piece of cartilage that cushions the knee. Highly active individuals and older persons are more susceptible to meniscus injuries as they put more wear and tear on this essential tissue. When you are treated by Dr. Domby for a meniscus injury, he will thoroughly examine all the components of your knee, and take into account your age, lifestyle, health, and other factors, before determining is a meniscus repair is right for you.
Sometimes, a minor meniscus tear can heal on its own, and physical therapy, injections, medications, and other forms of noninvasive treatment options can be used to alleviate a patient’s discomfort throughout the natural healing process.
