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

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 2 more doctor answers
What therapy or surgery is best for a full thickness tear of my infraspinatus tendon measuring 1cm transversely with tendon retracted by approximately?
Surgery: Unless you are a very low demand, inactive person, surgery would certainly be better. When you have a partial tear of the rotator cuff, the ends are still approximated and therapy can help with the healing process. In a complete tear the ends retract and they will never heal unless repaired. An elderly person can have them scar down and have some function, but most people better with repair. ...Read more
Does a high grade partial tear of the medial retinaculum require surgery or is physical therapy a better option?
Try Pt first: I assume u dislocated your kneecap( patella ). If u tore your medial patellofemoral ligament (mpfl) ( medial retinaculum ) the initial tx is geared to strengthening your quads( specifically the vmo). If your patella continues to 'slip' despite quad strengthening / patellar brace see an ors adept at knee injuries. Surgery can involve repair/ reconstruction of the mpfl . Gl! ...Read more
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
