      Frequently Asked Questions

      Meniscus tear is a common type of knee injury. Forcefully twisting or rotating your knee, especially during certain activities where your entire body weight falls on the knee, might lead to a torn meniscus. The C-shaped pieces of the cartilage of both your knees act like a cushion between your thigh bone and shinbone. A torn meniscus might lead to pain, swelling and stiffness. Meniscus tear might also block the motion of your knee and cause trouble in knee extension.

      In certain instances, conservative treatment such as medication, ice and rest might heal the injury and relieve the pain of your torn meniscus. Though severely torn meniscus might require surgical intervention.

      Listed below are the various symptoms of meniscus tear:

      • Swelling
      • Pain in the knee.
      • A popping sensation.
      • Difficulty bending and stretching the leg.
      • Your knee might also get stuck or "lock-up."

      During the initial stages of your injury, the pain will be very light. You will also be able to play during this stage. But the pain increases manifolds once the inflammation sets in. You may consult with Dr Aditya Sai at the Knee and Shoulders Clinic to better understand the condition and meniscus surgery cost in India.

      Activities involving forced twist or rotation that creates pressure on your knee might lead to a meniscus tear. Athletes are especially at risk for a meniscus tear. Activities that might lead to an injury include a sudden pivot, turn, heavy lifting or deep squatting.

      Sports involving sudden turns and stops may put you at risk of meniscus tears. Some of these sports are:

      • Tennis
      • Soccer
      • Football
      • Basketball

      According to Dr Aditya Sai, a renowned surgeon, meniscus tears are becoming prevalent among children because kids participate in organized sports at an early age. Children are more likely to experience meniscus tear, primarily when they are focusing on only one sport. The same is also true for adolescents who participate in competitive sports.

      Meniscus tear is more common in your 30s as meniscus tends to weaken with age. Individuals with weak meniscus might get injured when involved in a movement like squatting and stepping. Individuals with one of the common joint disorders, Osteoarthritis, are also at higher risk of developing a knee injury or meniscus tear.

      If an aged person experiences a meniscus tear, it's more likely to be due to degeneration, a result of weak and thin knee cartilage. If you are looking for a doctor who offers meniscus tear treatment in India, you might reach out to Dr Aditya Sai. He is a renowned surgeon with years of experience and expertise.

      Your doctor might conduct a thorough physical examination to identify your torn meniscus in addition to the following tests.

      Imaging Tests:

      • X-rays: Meniscus is made up of cartilage, so a torn meniscus can't be detected through X-rays. But X-rays can help rule out various other knee problems with similar symptoms.
      • MRI: Radio waves and strong magnetic fields are used in MRI to obtain detailed images of both hard and soft knee tissues. It is the best imaging technique to detect a torn meniscus.


      In some instances, an instrument called an arthroscope with a light and a small camera might be used by your doctor to examine the inside of your knee. Small incisions are made near your knee to insert the arthroscope to trim or repair the knee tear. An enlarged image of your knee is projected on the monitor, making it easier for the doctor to manoeuvre as needed.

      You might be already aware of the meniscus surgery cost in India and the factors governing them. If you are looking for an affordable option, you might contact Dr Aditya Sai, one of the best surgeons for meniscus tear treatment in India.

      If the treatments mentioned above can't cure your Meniscus tear, your doctor might recommend arthroscopic surgery. Particular instructions will be provided by your doctor on how to prepare for the surgery and include:

      • Before the surgery, you need to be fitted with crutches and learn how to use them.
      • The patient needs to complete various pre-surgery requirements, including X-rays, blood tests, MRI, electrocardiogram, and medical clearances, including anaesthesia clearance.
      • Before your surgery, you need to fill the complete prescription for pain medication.
      • Refrain from eating and drinking anything from the night before your procedure.

      If you experience any conditions that might keep you from having surgery, you must notify the doctors about it. Some of these conditions include fever, cold, infection, and an open wound.

      A small incision will be made by the surgeon in your knee. A camera and repairing tool is inserted through this incision to repair or trim away the damaged meniscus. The entire procedure takes about one hour, and you may be discharged the same day after surgery. Though full recovery takes time, you can start with the physical therapy within a few days after the surgery. Various advanced tools are required for the surgery, which ultimately spikes the medial meniscus tear surgery cost in India.

      The complete recovery and rehabilitation of Meniscus tear take about six weeks. You need to wear a knee brace or crutches during this time. Risks are associated with surgery, so you need to check with your doctor to determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. Regular visits to the doctor and physical therapy will be a part of your recovery to strengthen the muscles supporting the knee.
