Knee Meniscus Tears

The Beginning of the End for Meniscectomy

More than 90% of the time, meniscus surgery does not “repair” the meniscus but removes the torn pieces. Meniscus surgery removes healing elements within the tissue that may help the knee naturally rebuild itself.

Some of the often overlooked components after meniscus surgery, are that it removes tissue, weakens the structure of the knee, and leads to degeneration through instability and knee breakdown.

Regenerative Medicine for Knee Pain

There are people who have very successful knee surgeries for their meniscus problems but these are typically not the people I see in my office. I see people with disappointing surgical outcomes. In many studies the researchers reaffirm two things:

  • The meniscus does have the capability to repair and regenerate.
  • When we surgically remove meniscus tissue we remove the cells that can naturally repair the meniscus damage.

Regenerative medicine and orthobiologic treatments harness the potential of cell biology for tissue replacement therapies including the meniscus of the knee joint, and restore lost tissue functionality.

Orthobiologic treatments such as PRP and Adipose Derived Stem Cells appear safe in the short- and mid-term and have shown promise as standalone treatments, for their use in meniscal tear management.

A physical exam and medical history review by a bio-orthopaedic that has experience helping people with meniscus tears would help you understand how this treatment could help you.

Stem cell therapy for meniscus tears is the most advanced orthopedic therapy that has been booming in the current world. Stem cell treatments are highly effective non-surgical methods to heal a meniscus injury.

The patients who received stem cell injections for meniscus tear have found significant improvement in the pain. Also, stem cell therapy healed the injury and restored the health of the surrounding tissue.
