In brief: Repair vs removal

This procedure is completed arthroscopically.
You may have a meniscus repair or a partial menisectomy (removal). The repair is ideal, if possible, for preventing arthritic changes, but requires a longer recovery time. In either case recovery is relatively quick. Post-op rehab will concentrate on motion, & quad strength.
