Meniscectomy (cartilage)

Meniscectomy (cartilage)

Surgical removal of the meniscus is known as meniscectomy. The meniscus is a cartilage in the knee joint that acts as a shock absorber. The procedure is carried out under general or local anaesthetic. Several small incisions are made over the knee joint. An arthroscope as well as other small tools are inserted into the joint. The whole joint is viewed by the surgeon and the damaged meniscus is removed. The procedure is completed by closing the the incisions with sutures. Possible complications are pain, bleeding, infection and deep vein thrombosis.
