ORTHOPAEDIC KNEE SURGEON
Whenever possible, a meniscal tear should be repaired using meniscal sutures.
There are numerous devices available for this and excellent results have been shown in all manner of tears.
It has also been well demonstrated now that the age of the patient is not as important as the physiological status of the patient when deciding whether or not to suture.
When a meniscal tear is diagnosed and treated, with or without surgery it is important to protect the healing tear.
