Meniscal Tear Treatment
Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure.
A meniscal tear is a rupturing of one or more of the fibrocartilage strips in the knee called menisci. It is commonly called ‘torn cartilage’ in the knee. Meniscal tears are among the most common knee injuries.
A partial meniscectomy is performed to remove only the torn segment of the meniscus. Arthroscopic surgeries allow the re approximate of the torn edges of the meniscus to allow them to heal in their proper place and not get caught in the knee causing the symptoms to reoccur.
The meniscal tear treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
