Better function: After surgery, depending on if the meniscus is repair or removed, you should be involved in a rehab protocol the is specific for acl/meniscus recovery. The rehab takes 4-6 months, plus the time to get back to your sport specific activities. My patients are not allowed to do any cutting or pivoting until 8 months after surgery.
