Dr Praveen Tittal is one of the best arthroscopic surgeon in India for treating Meniscal Tears. Meniscal tears are among the most common knee injuries. Athletes, particularly those who play contact sports, are at risk for meniscal tears. However, anyone at any age can tear a meniscus. When people talk about torn cartilage in the knee, they are usually referring to a torn meniscus.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is often used to diagnose meniscal injuries. The meniscus shows up as black on the MRI. Any tears appear as white lines. An MRI is 70 to 90% accurate in identifying whether the meniscus has been torn and how badly. However, meniscus tears do not always appear on MRIs.
Meniscus tears, indicated by MRI, are classified in three grades. Grades 1 and 2 are not considered serious. They may not even be apparent with an arthroscopic examination. Grade 3 is a true meniscus tear and an arthroscope is close to 100% accurate in diagnosing this tear.
Treatment of the meniscus tear will depend on the type of tear you have, its size and location. The outside one-third of the meniscus has a rich blood supply. A tear in this "red" zone may heal on its own, or can often be repaired without surgery. A longitudinal tear is an example of this kind of tear. In contrast, the inner two-thirds of the meniscus lacks in blood supply. Without nutrients from blood, tears in this "white" zone cannot heal so easily on their own.
Along with the type of tear you have, your age, activity level, and any related injuries will factor into your treatment plan.
Simple, less painful meniscus tears can be treated without surgery with PRP injections and physiotherapy. But for most grade 3 tears Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair Surgery is needed. In India Dr Praveen Tittal will be your best bet to get the best results in case of any sports injury be it ACL, PCL or Meniscal Injury. Dr Tittal has done more than 5000 Arthroscopic Surgeries in his career.

Meniscus surgery is a quick straight forward procedure that usually takes less than an hour. It can be done as a day care surgery i.e. you do not need to stay in the hospital overnight, but some patients may stay in the hospital for 24 hours due to insurance compliance. Patients are able to walk independently with/without a crutch within a few hours after meniscus trimming. Most of the patients fully recover in 2-3 weeks and resume all normal activities.
If you have had a meniscus repair procedure, you will need to use stick for about 2 weeks to keep weight off your knee and do the prescribed phyiotherapy and the exercises to get full mobility and strength in your knee joint.
