Plica Excision
« on: January 05, 2004, 12:43:33 AM »
My knee has been hurting for years.  I can do some things, but forget bending as in yoga and squatting.  An MRI shows a minor tear in my meniscus and the doc says the plica band probably needs to come out given my symptoms.  I am having foot surgery at the same time to make the recovery worth while.  I read some horror stories here about scoping.  Glad I found this site.  Any advice comments about the plica excision.
