Meniscus Injuries

Arthroscopic surgery no better than exercise therapy

Meniscus surgeries involve removing a portion of the meniscus which greatly increases the likelihood of osteoarthritis in the knee for a procedure than has been shown to be no more effective than sham surgery. Regenexx provides an alternative.

Avoid Ineffective Meniscus Surgery

Have you been told that your knee pain is caused by a torn meniscus and that a meniscectomy will relieve your knee pain and restore function? Interventional Orthopedics offers a non-surgical option for treating meniscus tears that uses your body's natural healing agents to repair the damage to your meniscus.

More and more research continues to show that, as we age, meniscus tears are as common as wrinkles and that these tears do not necessarily cause knee pain. Meniscectomy, a surgery in which a portion of the meniscus is cut away, is a surgery that harms the integrity of the knee and may greatly increase the occurrence of osteoarthritis.

What’s more, more than half of the patients are not completely satisfied with their results and continue to report pain following surgery. Research highlights that this surgery is no better than a sham or fake surgery at reducing knee pain. In light of this evidence, it makes less and less sense for anyone to undergo this surgery when there is an alternative available.

During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing agents into the exact areas of damage to help repair tears in your meniscus and to tighten loose tendons and ligaments to improve function while reducing or eliminating pain. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
