Meniscus Tear

Share this post

The meniscus cartilage is the key shock absorber inside your knee. If you've damaged your meniscus, it's very important that you try to have it repaired or save it as much as possible. If you lose even part of it, you increase the force inside the knee and can develop arthritis. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Kevin Stone has developed a number of techniques for rebuilding, repairing and regenerating the meniscus.
