What is the period of time it takes for a partially torn meniscus to heal?

6 to 8 weeks. It depends on the anatomical location of the torn meniscus. If it close to the peripheral vascular zone then it has a good chance to heal. If it is in the inner third nonvascular zone then the chances of healing are poor.
