Did you know that between 12 and 14% of people will tear a meniscus at some point in their life?
A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries today, but just because it’s a common injury, doesn’t mean there’s a simple, single solution.
In fact, treatments range from rest and mild pain medication to potential surgery, with several options in between – but there’s one thing they all have in common.
The sooner you get diagnosed and begin your treatment, the sooner you’ll be back on your feet.

Why so much discussion about the meniscus? The short answer is that we all have them, they’re easily injured, and they should be treated as soon as possible for the best results.
The meniscus is a hard piece of cartilage located in each knee, and when it is damaged, the symptoms can range from popping sensations, swelling, and stiffness, to an inability to straighten the joint, and sometimes severe pain. In younger people, the damage is often caused during intense physical activity, such as sports that involve twisting the knee. In older adults though, a meniscus can sometimes be torn by even gentle activity, such as taking a walk.
Unfortunately, since a meniscus is made of cartilage, it doesn’t show up on a normal X-ray. Sometimes, a physical examination may be enough for a diagnosis, though you will probably be asked to undergo an MRI scan to provide confirmation, as well as a more detailed view of your injury.
Knee injuries are commonly attended to by Prof. Paul Lee, MBBch, MFSEM, MSc, PhD, FEBOT, FRCS, the clinic’s founder, and top specialist for conditions of the knee and hip. Prof. Lee is an expert in sports and regenerative surgery, who is known for his work with elite athletes and his focus on providing minimally invasive or non-surgical treatments whenever possible.
If you’re still not sure about the MSK Doctors clinic, find them on Google to see some of their reviews, which easily average 5 out of 5 stars.
One happy patient explained, “Prof. Lee ensured that he fully understood the nature of my injuries and then communicated clearly to me my options and which option he thought had the best chance of success. He and his team performed the operation, and at every stage, I felt confident in their abilities. I am very grateful.”
