How long is recovery time for mcl and meniscus surgery?

Depends

Extremity-joint-knee
Arthroscopic meniscal repair or resection is a common procedure.Most adults are 'recovered ' by 6 wks.Unususal to have an MCL repair w/ meniscus surgery by itself.Alot of times the MCL can heal on its own or in a brace.If it is completely torn and quite unstable(w/ACL intact) it may take another 4-6 wks or longer for complete healing.Again, unusual combination here..Good Luck!

How long is an acl, mcl, and meniscus surgery?

Depends

Mcl
This depends on several factors such as type of graft used and whether the meniscus is repaired versus debrided. On average the surgery is 1.5 to 2 hours.

Is is it better to get surgery sooner or after some physical therapy for a torn acl/mcl and meniscus?

Sooner

Physical_therapy
Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon. However, any physical therapy runs the risk of making a torn tendon or ligament worse.

I torn my acl, meniscus, and sprained my mcl. Will I be able to do gymnastics again without reconstructive surgery?

Without the reconstructive surgery I doubt very much you could compete in Gymnastic.

I tore my MCL, ACL and Meniscus in Jan and now im starting therapy to bend my knee will I be able to fully bend it again before surgery?

Maybe

Knee
Depends primarily on the size, type and location of the meniscal tear. The torn cartilage may block your motion or simply cause too much pain when trying to bend the knee.

Dr. Jason M. Boyer answered:

Recovery time for ACL, Meniscus and MCL Release?

Just an estimate

Meniscus
While hard to be specific without knowing more of the details, from the list you are asking about, the ACL is likely the limiting factor. The healing and therapy after an ACL reconstruction is 6-9 months. The meniscus and MCL will heal during this time, but the ACL usually takes the longest.

What is the Recovery time for acl reconstruction using hamstring, plus mcl repair plus lateral meniscus repair plus impact fracture of tibial plateau?

Difficult to say

Forearm_fractures
You describe a fairly significant knee operation and set of injuries. It's hard to say without examining you and reviewing your studies. Your orthopedic surgeon is in the best position to answer this question. It's safe to say that your recovery will last for several months with a lot of physical therapy.

Dr. Bradley Graw answered:

I'm having ACL and MCL surgery wondering what to expect?

Discuss with surgeon

Mcl
While ACL and MCL injuries are quite common, the treatment of them can vary based on the surgeon. It is best to talk with your doctor about the specific post operative protocol that he will prescribe you, which may be dictated in part by what is seen in surgery.

ACL Tear vs.a Meniscus Tear which is worse ? Which is worse an ACL Tear or a Meniscus Tear ? What is the difference in recovery time after surgery and pain after ?

An ACL tear is

Patella
typically worse than a meniscus tear and often they occur together. ACL surgery requires reconstruction of the cruciate ligament using a harvested graft from your patellar tendon or your hamstring most commonly. Recovery can be upwards of 6-8 months. Meniscus tears require brief outpatient surgery to trim out the torn portion and recovery is 4-6 weeks
