Surgery for meniscus tear and patella tilt
« on: February 19, 2010, 07:43:21 PM »

I got my mri results today, the consultant said I had a small meniscus tear as well as the patella tilt that I had been diagnosed with a year ago.  He thinks that keyhole surgery would be best for me as I have tried physiotherapy.  The keyhole surgery would involve shaving the meniscus and working on the mpfl.  He has given me 3 weeks to decide  whether I want this surgery.  I was wondering whether anyone has had this sort of surgery?   

Thanks in advance
