Meniscus surgery is wack
The meniscus acts as a cushion in the joint between the thigh and shin bone as well as providing extra stability at the knee. It naturally moves forward and backward in the joint depending on the knee position.
Arthroscopic surgery usually involves meniscectomy, which means to cut out or remove a portion of the meniscus. Why would you want to cut out the cushion in your joint? Could this possibly contribute to more "bone on bone"or joint irritation and degeneration? The failure rate of meniscus surgery is fairly high (1), and often leads to total knee replacement.
To top it off, research at the highest level is showing that there is no difference between groups for surgery verses no repair in 35-65 year olds (2).
