Florida Orthopaedists Repairing the Meniscus

Specialists in Meniscal Surgery in Palm Beach, Broward, & Miami-Dade

In the knee structure, there is a pad between the femur and the tibia that absorbs impact and protects the knee. The pad is known as the meniscus, and it allows people to walk, jump, and move without pain or harm to the knee. It is vital to athletes, and those who play contact sports are particularly likely to damage it.

When the meniscus is damaged, there are both non-surgical and surgical options, depending on the severity. Surgical procedures for meniscus repair can include arthroscopic surgery, which can allow patients to heal quickly with minimal pain. For knee surgery, it is best to work with an arthroscopic specialist.
