The meniscus is a soft tissue structure within the knee joint that helps in shock absorption and load transmission. A damaged or torn meniscus, commonly a result of sports or traumatic injury, can give rise to knee pain, swelling and locking.
In the long run, it can also result in knee degeneration. Hence there is a growing impetus amongst orthopaedic surgeons to repair and preserve the meniscus as much as possible, whenever they treat patients with meniscus tears.
Dr Andy Wee was invited as part of the expert panel to share the current and latest treatment strategies in arthroscopic (keyhole) meniscus repair.
This meeting was held on 9 Nov, and it was attended via zoom by orthopaedic surgeons throughout the Asia Pacific region.
