64 yes old. Can torn rotate cuff cause funny feeling onface. Slight burning some pain. Or sinuses?
No and maybe...: In general, it would be unusual for a rotator cuff issue to cause a funny feeling on your face. Sinus trouble could, but I would expect you to describe more symptoms, and the feeling is usually fullness or pain. One thing I would be concerned about when someone has a funny feeling on the face is the possibility of a warning symptom of shingles, which on the face can be serious. If continues, be seen. ...Read more
Consider repair: Meniscal tears have many subsets. Rare tears may heal spontaneously. However, the majority will not heal and thus are not candidates for repair. For those tears, which do have potential for healing, they should be considered for repair. If a repairable tear is exposed to high loads (sports, work, etc.) it may tear further and become non-repairable. The meniscus is very important: try to save it. ...Read more
What does a slight superior displacement of the meniscal root mean? Does that mean that the meniscus it torn? What do it look like? Please help
Possible tear: Mri is 95% sensitive in detecting injuries to the meniscus. Displacement on the MRI and symptoms/physical exam consistent with a meniscus tear should be assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon experienced in sports medicine and/or arthroscopy. Surgery can be performed to repair the root, but is difficult, less successful in knees over age 30 and not as straightforward as a "routine" scope. ...Read more

I found out I have a mild shift to my knee cap and torn ligaments and cartlig missing. Would I need a cast after surgrey?
Restrictive bracing: Very rarely (to never) is the knee joint actually casted. In situations where a knee should not be flexed following surgery an immobilizer or brace (locked in extension) may be applied. However, these options are more conducive to post-op pain management modalities, bathing, and monitoring of incisions for infection. Most likely you will only have to deal with a brace and crutches. ...Read more

A torn meniscus can-: - be made worse with minimal loading of the knee. Now it may be displaying or catching and the giving way causes the muscles to let go & hence the feeling of instability. Consult with your orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
For the ACL: Reconstruction is the gold standard, typically done with a graft tendon harvested from your own patella or hamstring. For the the PCL tendon surgery is not usually done if it is torn by itself, but if it is torn along with an acl tear it is often reconstructed in the same setting with a hamstring tendon or even a cadaver allograft. ...Read more
Ouch. Need trainer: Any muscle tear takes time to heal. 8 months? Likely you are reinjuring yourself. I suggest a visit with a physical therapist or trainer. Remember my orthopedic sirgeon colleagues can also be of help. If it's been eight months it's time to bite the bullet and see someone. This advice is predicated on not knowing how you injured yourself and without a proper exam. PT is way to go though. ...Read more

With my last baby I had a midline episiotomy, but still tore badly. What are the chances of a tear again?
Possible: If you had a previous episiotomy or previous tear it is certainly possible to have a laceration happen again but not a guarantee that it will. I find many patients on their second and third deliveries will have no tears at all. I do not cut routine episiotomies either. ...Read more

MCL tear heal nicely: Most mcl tears will heal in time. While they are healing, the mcl needs to be protected. Therapy can also be helpful to strengthen the knee to support the mcl. Talk with your doctor to get started. ...Read more
I partially tore my ligament three months ago and it has not fully recovered since then. What am I supposed to do? Will this be chronic?
Possibly...: Depends a lot on which ligament you injured and the shape of the muscles around that joint. Ligaments don't typically repair themselves. So after such an injury, the goal of physical therapy is to develop the muscles around the joint in question, taking over some of the support function of the ligament. If that doesn't work, sometimes surgery is indicated. So, if you're not doing so, see a pt next. ...Read more
