Knee Meniscectomy is a surgery performed for treating a damaged meniscus which is a structure made of cartilage responsible for a proper functioning of joints.
Arthroscopic meniscectomy procedure involves 2-3 small incisions around the joint, followed by a camera insertion through one of the incisions and additional tools for performing the procedure. The tear is found using the camera in the joint and a small piece (partial meniscectomy) or the entire (total meniscectomy) meniscus is removed. The incisions are closed with a suture or surgical tape strips. The best specialist to consult for Knee Meniscectomy is an Orthopedic and Joint Replacement Surgeon. The success rate for the treatment remains between 85-86%.
