Meniscal tears are among the most common knee injuries.
You might feel a “pop” when you tear a meniscus, within 2 to 3 days, your knee will gradually become more stiff and swollen.

The most common symptoms of meniscal tears are:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness and swelling
  • Catching or locking of your knee
  • The sensation of your knee “giving way”
  • You are not able to move your knee through its full range of motion

Without treatment, a piece of meniscus may come loose and drift into the joint.

The Role of Arthroscopy
Knee arthroscopy is often done to confirm a diagnosis. It’s usually an outpatient procedure. In most cases, your surgeon can treat your problem at the same time.

The Arthroscope
The arthroscope is a device that looks directly into joints. The arthroscope contains a light source, a camera and a pathway for fluids. An intense cool light is beamed into the joint. The camera sends an image of the knee joint to a monitor. Sterile fluid may be used to expand the joint. This makes easier for the surgeon to work.
