Knee meniscectomy is the most common surgical procedure performed on the knee. A meniscus tear can occur as an acute injury or through degeneration. Patients usually experience pain with weight-bearing, squatting, and twisting. Meniscectomy is performed as a minimally invasive surgery using knee arthroscopy. The meniscus is trimmed and smoothed with small instruments through 2 small stab incisions in the knee. Patients usually recover quickly and completely.
Dr. Bushnell has advanced training in arthroscopic treatment of knee injuries.
