Synopsis

Tears to the meniscus, a vital structure in the knee, can cause pain and problems with activities. This eBook provides information on everything you need to know about meniscus injuries, including what the meniscus does and why it is so important, treatment options, and what to expect from these options. Some meniscus tears heal on their own, but others require surgery. Unfortunately, many tears are removed in young patients who then develop arthritis. It is better to save meniscus tissue by repairing (sewing together) tears. In young patients who have the meniscus removed and develop pain, a transplant may be done. Two medical professionals have written this eBook to help patients deal with this injury. Dr. Frank Noyes, an internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, and Sue Barber-Westin, Director of Clinical Research at the Cincinnati SportsMedicine Research Foundation, team up to provide information that is reasy to read and understand regarding meniscus injuries.
