In brief: Thessaly test

The affected knee is tested for meniscal pathology.
Standing on the affected leg with the knee straight the examiner takes your hands and rotates your body to right and left. This is repeated with the knee bent 20 degrees. If pain reproduced with knee bent worried about meniscal tear.

In brief: You Tube.

There are many good demonstrations of the test on you tube.
If you had surgery and your knee is really in a bind again you should consider seeing the surgeon for a relook.
