What is the typical treatment for a muniscus tear is there surgery involved? What kind of pain medication and how long is recovery?
Hello. : Hello. I don't know the extent of your injury. Often, arthroscopic surgery is done to the knee. This means that the surgery is done internally, without filleting the knee open. Without knowing more about your injury it is hard to say how long the recovery would be. If there is a small tear and that is removed, your recovery time could be four to six weeks. (this doesn't mean you need to lie in bed for four to six weeks; but you wouldn't want to be playing sports). It the doctor only needed to remove loose bodies from the joint space, that recovery might take two to four weeks. It the meniscus requires repair, it could take four months or longer for a full recovery. Often patients are prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Narcotics are often prescribed post operatively to control pain. ...Read more
I have chronic partial acl+pcl tear+laxity(50 days delayayed treatment). It has been 8 months can it be treated 100% with surgery/reconstruction.
Yes and no: Surgery is always iffy & is forever. There are world class soccer players playing with acl ruptures. They made dedicated efforts to develop strong muscles of upper & lower leg. Physical therapist can be helpful in this. The principle is when a joint is loose, the way to accommodate is to develop "gorilla" muscles around joint so that muscles take over what damaged ligaments can no longer do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Soft painless blister in lower inner cheek for 5 weeks. I think it is mucocele. How to cure it other than surgery? It varies in size gets big/small
Cheek blister?: Why are you waiting so long to get this examined? And why are you self-diagnosing? Any lesion in your mouth that has not healed within 7-10 days, and especially one that changes in shape and/or size, needs to be examined clinically and possibly biopsied. See your dentist or an oral surgeon ASAP for a proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a partial tear to rotator cuff. Opted for physical therapy rather than surgery. After several weeks of therapy still some stiffness. Will the stiffness ever go away?
Yes: Partial rotator cuff tears are often treatable with therapy, but may take 6-12 weeks to improve. Oral and/or injectable steroids are helpful and may speed recovery. If non-operative treatment fails, arthroscopic surgery works quite well. The inflamed bursa and partial rotator cuff tear will be debrided. Bone spurs are also removed. The typical recovery is 3-4 months. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Not every meniscus tear requires surgery. Some meniscus tears if they are in the "red zone"area where they get blood supply may heal. Others that are in the "white zone" that do not have a good blood supply may not heal. Physical therapy can strengthen the muscles supporting the knee and will often help. Your doctor can help you decide on conservative versus surgical treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Age 16, i hurt my shoulder 2 months ago. Physical therapy and cortisone not helpful. Mri shows rotator cuff tear and bone spur. Should I have surgery?
Shoulder Specialist: I rarely see patients at age 16 that have a rotator cuff tear and don't have other shoulder pathology such as a labrum tear, suprascapular nerve injury or an unstable shoulder. I would recommend you have an evaluation with someone that performs hundreds of shoulder repairs like yours annually. I am also suspicious of the bone spur diagnosis. http://www.theshouldercenter.com/shoulderpain/2013/sho. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
