Types of Meniscal Surgeries

Common types of Meniscus Surgeries include:

Partial Meniscectomy

A Partial Meniscectomy is a surgical technique that involves the removal of a small section of the meniscus, which is damaged or unstable. After that, the remaining meniscus edges are smoothed to make sure that no frayed ends are left.

Total Meniscectomy

A Total Meniscectomy refers to the entire removal of the meniscus. This is an operation typically done as a knee arthroscopy in cases where the knee is severely damaged or when damage to the meniscus outweighs any benefit from retaining it.

Meniscus Repair

A meniscus repair surgery is a surgical procedure that helps maintain the cartilage in your knee joint. In this process, the surgeon uses a variety of fixation techniques to help retain as much meniscus as possible. This is important to help preserve the knee joint by maintaining as much of the shock absorber cartilage in the joint as possible.
