Knee Arthroscopy - Key Hole Surgery to Remove Damaged Cartilage at Nuffield Health Newcastle upon Tyne Hospital

A meniscus tear is a common injury to the cartilage that stabilizes and cushions the knee joint. The pattern of the tear can determine whether your tear can be repaired. Radial tears sometimes can be repaired, depending on where they are located. Horizontal, flap, long-standing, and degenerative tears-those caused by years of wear and tear-generally cannot be repaired.
