The meniscus may be injured and tear, and cause symptoms.
The surgeon may consider that the torn fragment should be removed via keyhole surgery - partial arthroscopic meniscectomy. Rarely the whole meniscus is removed - total arthroscopic meniscectomy. However these days knee surgeons do their best to preserve as much as possible of the meniscus, using meniscal repair techniques such as suturing (sewing).
