Could knees popping out of joint, post bilateral partial knee replacements for grade 4 patella chondromalacia in feb, cause a torn meniscus?

Depends: If your kneecap is popping in and out, this is a problem with the surgery and likely will not cause a meniscus tear. But if your knee itself is subluxating/popping out (rare), this certainly could cause a meniscus tear. ...Read more
