Discoid Meniscus

Discoid Meniscus

Treatment

There are various treatments available, from simple observation to surgical stabilisation.

In many cases discoid menisci can be monitored and observed.  If they are causing problems, such as pain, locking or giving way, then they may require surgical management.

If the meniscus is torn, it may require surgical excision as frequently the part which has torn off is degenerated and not repairable.  In cases where the meniscus is unstable, it may require repair and stabilisation to the joint capsule.
