In our last installment of "Facts & Things to Consider", we want you to consider some information about arthroscopic surgery.
Arthroscopic Surgery for Tear Of Knee Meniscus:
Locking or clicking may not be from the meniscal tear and just from the underlying arthritis
Tear may not be the cause of pain which is usually arthritis
Research reveals no positive effect in the medium and long term surgical repair related to more arthritis, not less.
Almost 20% of population above 40 years old WITHOUT KNEE PAIN have torn meniscus
Removal of meniscus may be even more risky than repair of a tear
Please keep all of the above in mind before submitting to this treatment. Here‘s what should be considered first; Viscosupplementation (gel injections), PRP, Fat or Bone-Marrow based stem cells, home exercise, Genicular Nerve Block, Radiofrequency Pain Block and many others.
