Anywhere: The most common orthopedic procedure is a knee arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy. It means we can all perform it and it is difficult to find out which surgeon performs it best. A better question is would be whether a surgeon will spend the time to tailor treatment to you as an individual. Many times, meniscectomies are not completely necessary. Spend the time and research your surgeon.
