Some of the most common orthopedic related to knee injuries and one of the most common knee related problems are meniscus problem. Generally, the term 'meniscus' is used to refer to the cartilage of the knee, either to the lateral or medial meniscus. There are two general types of meniscus injuries, acute tears that are often the result of trauma or a sports injury and chronic or wear-and-tear type tears. They are often treated with surgical repair depending upon the patient's age as they rarely heal on their own. Chronic tears are treated symptomatically: physical therapy with or without the addition of injections and anti-inflammatory medications. If the tear causes continued pain, swelling, or knee dysfunction, then the tear can be removed or repaired surgically. All Island Orthopedics in Astoria and Bayside, are specializing in meniscus repair treatments both surgical and non-surgical cases.
