    Meniscus Tear Treatment

    The meniscus is a crescent-shaped cartilage in the knees that acts as a cushion between the thigh and shin bone. If, by any accident, the meniscus is torn, the person faces severe pain in the bone resulting in pain, inflammation and difficulty performing daily life activities. Meniscus tear surgery is required in severe cases to repair the damaged tissue or remove it completely.
    Meniscus tear surgery is suggested for patients facing extreme pain, swelling and locking in the knee. Surgery for those facing degenerative meniscus tears is recommended to release them from discomfort. Hence the surgery aims to relieve the pain of a damaged or broken meniscus ligament. The surgery is usually performed with the help of arthroscopy. It is a well-known technique that involves minimum invasion techniques hence small incisions and a camera to get a complete view of the situation inside the knee.

    The surgery takes about two hours to complete, and the patients can go home on the same day. After the surgery, patients are given braces and crutches to use for several weeks to reduce the pressure on the knee, allowing it to heal completely. Physical therapy is needed to regain strength and mobility in the operated knee.

    Thus, meniscus tear surgery is a good option for the treatment of those patients who are suffering from the pain of a damaged meniscus ligament or have a completely broken meniscus ligament. The surgery would help them restore their daily life activities and the knee’s normal functioning. It helps reduce the pain and discomfort from the broken ligament and prevents further damage to the knees. Also, ensure that you are going for the surgical procedure only after all non-surgical procedures and treatments have been tried and did not deliver successful results. To get a complete idea of whether you should undergo the procedure, it is best to consult an orthopaedic surgeon who would assess your situation and suggest it accordingly. Inform your doctor about your condition, and they will examine it and then help you receive the most effective treatment.

    Dr. Aditya Sai is a gemstone. My father-in-law had a tendon injury while climbing stairs in my hometown, Odisha, and the doctor there made us nervous like anything; he asked us to rush to Bhubaneswar or Visakhapatnam immediately and get the surgery done within 7 days. Thank God, I live in Mumbai and learned about Dr. Aditya Sai through a mutual friend, and I took an appointment. Next morning, my father-in-law flew from Odisha to Mumbai, and we met Dr. Aditya Sai. Believe me, he made us so comfortable, and first he made us understand the exact situation, the need for an MRI, and in what scenarios surgery is required, etc. After all the diagnoses, he prescribed special footwear for my father-in-law for 6 weeks. Today, as I write this post, without surgery, my father-in-law is absolutely perfect and is about to go to the physiotherapists for recovery. Thank you, Dr. Aditya Sai. 🙏

    I went to Dr. Aditya Sai after an acident. He showed remarkable depth of knowledge, skill, and awareness, during the process of advising for surgery and off course - also during the surgery. This helped me recover quite well. His communication and willingness to talk to other treating doctors was great and particularly helpful in mitigating risks associated with the surgery and also helped during the course of my recovery. Most of all, he comes across as a warm and sensitive doctor, which makes him among the better Doctors that I've ever met.

    Experiencing a complex lateral meniscus tear, the doctor advised surgery as the sole option. Seeking a second opinion from a family doctor, he concurred with the initial diagnosis. The entire surgical process was painless both pre and post-operation. Post-op, there was manageable pain related to knee swelling. I have no complaints about the entire experience.The doctor also recommended a physiotherapist who proved highly effective, guiding me through the entire recovery. I would confidently recommend this doctor to any patient dealing with knee sports injuries.

    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.
