Knee Injuries: Meniscus Treatment

Dr. Keith Hechtman, Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, affirms cushion is very important to protect the knee from excessive wear.

He describes with a prototype, that although the meniscus looks like a structure, it is between 80 and 90% its weight in water.

The doctor says it�۪s important to keep the meniscus, because it acts as a water cushion, and that allows things like jumping and running instead of having the bones hit together.
