What is the best knee brace for post surgery meniscus tears. The brace issued to me feels to cause pain more so than relive it.

In brief: Depends

Depends on the surgery.
With partial meniscectomy where the damaged part of the meniscus is removed typically no brace is needed. With meniscal repair a brace is usually used to control the amount of bend in the knee postop. Check with your surgeon.
