Meniscal allograft transplantation is a transplant of a knee meniscus from one person to another.

Meniscus allograft meniscal allograft on bone block  
The graft can be inserted via different methods. Here a bone block is prepared to be slotted into a matching slot in the bone at the top of the tibia  

The objective of a transplant is to restore the shock absorption on that side, and improve the limb aloignment - both of which should lessen the risk of joint arthritis.
