What are my treatment options?
Nonsurgical treatment options may be prescribed to treat your meniscus tear. Any of the following may be included in your customized treatment plan:
- Activity modification
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Physical therapy
Surgery may be recommended as a treatment option if your meniscus tear is severe and your symptoms do not respond to nonsurgical treatment options.
During an arthroscopic meniscus repair, your Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon at Active Orthopedics & Sports Medicine repairs the tear and uses suture anchors to attach the meniscus to the bone. In most cases, this is performed as an outpatient procedure.
