Meniscal Tear? What You Should Consider.

Do you have a meniscal tear? You should strongly consider avoiding a surgical meniscectomy of the knee.

Meniscectomy is one of the most common outpatient surgical procedures in the United States with about 700,000 performed annually. New research demonstrates that meniscal removal leads to rapid cartilage cell death (ie arthritis). Most surgery does not remove the entire meniscus, but any loss can have negative consequences with acceleration of osteoarthrosis. One option we at NJRI offer is regenerative medicine using one’s own fat (adipose) to treat the meniscal tear and pain and avoid surgery. – Jay E. Bowen, DO
