Meniscus - surgery: You are quoting detailed anatomy inside the knee, likely from an MRI report.

It covers the bones that make up the knee joint, like frosting on a cake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes throbbing along the joint line in the knee mostly medial? Is there any treatment to straightening the knee when it is stuck?
LOCKED KNEE: Although there are a number of possibilities, it sounds like you injured your meniscus..
