In brief: Yes

Yes, the short answer is that meniscal transplants are available.
It is really more an issue of what your specific problem is and what treatment options would be best for you. Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon.

To see if you qualify for a study, please call (844) 680-8951 or click on the city nearest you in the US. Patient info for clinical studies in meniscus implants.

In brief: No implants

There are Platelet Rich Plasma PRP injections that some doctors use made from your own blood plasma.
Needs special equipment and training for these injections.
Some Rheumatologists treat Arthritis in US w this therapy.
Running is hard on knees. Maybe consider change in training method, foot wear, sport to prevent further knee problems.
