Due to the extremely important function of the meniscus with regard to the protective and stabilizing properties in the knee joint, an attempt should always be made to preserve the meniscus as much as possible during meniscus treatment. Therefore, the aim should always be to perform a meniscus suture. The healing success of such a meniscus treatment depends on various factors. The localization of the tear, the shape of the tear itself and the consistency of the meniscus play a decisive role.
In order to accelerate the healing process, additional use of PRP is reommended.
After the meniscus surgery, the knee should be weightbeared partially for 4-6 weeks and the mobility reduced using a knee brace to ensure healing.
