Arthroscopic Meniscus Surgery

Minimally-Invasive Options for Knee Repair

The meniscus is a small piece of cartilage that houses the knee. It provides a cushion between the femur and the tibia, acting as a shock absorber for the body. The meniscus can tear from traumatic impact, such as in sports, or from overuse and grinding, like with arthritis.

When the meniscus tears, an arthroscopic surgeon can repair or cut away from the meniscus—without using large incisions. Arthroscopic knee repair is a fairly recent innovation that uses small incisions and tools called “arthroscopes.” This procedure often results in less painful or invasive surgery, and some patients are able to go home the same day.
