What is usually done for a displaced meniscus to prevent osteoarthritis forming? I have having a lot of medial side pain doc told me to live with it?
Meniscus padding : Missing the meniscus decreases the cushion on your joints. Although there is no way to replace that cushion at this time you can try to have a lateral or medial heel wedge in your shoes depending on the side removed. Appropriately fitted this could shift the pressure to the side with the intact meniscus when you were walking, running etc. Also appropriate exercises such as quadriceps strengthening is important. ...Read more

28 yr-old had ACL repair 10 years ago, and has felt leaning and off-balanced since a second surgery 5 yrs ago, and hopes to find a cure.....?
Full ortho eval: Initial radiographs would need to include weightbearing views: Bilateral standing AP, PA Rosenberg, full extension lateral and bilateral sunrise views. If any hint of poor alignment noted, then proceed with full hip-knee-ankle bilateral mechanical axis views to determine where weightbearing line from center of femoral head to ankle crosses at the knee joint. This will help determine if an osteotomy in such a young patient is indicated or should be considered. After imaging and a full examination for motion strength, and laxity, an MRI would help finalize any plans for potential surgery by delineating the degree of any cartilage or meniscal and ligamentous pathology. With history of hyperextension, a definite concern is whether posterolateral corner (LCL, popliteus and popliteofibular ligament) is also involved or injured/loose. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
