Does your MRI indicate a meniscal tear? Do you need a Meniscal repair / replacement India?
See how Meniscal repair/ replacement India can help you to limit the damage and prolong the use of your knee. Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam has got trained in these procedures.
Meniscal preservation is very imprtant for knee function. When a person tears his ligaments like the ACL, he may devleop Meniscal injuries.
When should they be repaired?
Peripheral tears of the mensisci can be repaired before as soon as possible. This gives them the best chance to heal. When the ACL is also torn, Meniscus repair is done along with the ACL reconstruction. With advanced and unreparable tears meniscal implant may be possible in the near future in India. Long standing Meniscal tears may not heal even if sutured.
How is it done?
Meniscal repair is done by advanced key hole surgery. Sutures are passed through the torn portion and it is anchored to the intact rim as shown in the picture. Protected weight bearing for six weeks is mandatory after meniscal repair.
What happens if the menisci can’t be repaired?
Happy to announce that the Meniiscal replacement “Collagen Meniscus implant’ is now available in India. I can also offer a Meniscal transplant India. I was the only orthopaedic surgeon to be trained in these skills at the Cadaveric skills workshop of the International Cartilage repair society in Chicago, USA.
