Pre-Op Leg Strengthening
« on: January 07, 2008, 11:18:37 AM »
Hi Guys,

I have got a menisectomy scheduled for beginning of Feb 08. This is to fix three problems 1) Torn Medial Meniscus 2) Degenerative Medial Meiniscus and 3) Potentially a cyst on the meniscus.

I know from experience (this will be my second op - the first was to fix the tear in '04) that i need to strengthen the muscles around the knee so that the wastage and potential damage is reduced.

Can anyone recommend exercises to focus on pre-op?
