Meniscus Injuries in Older Adults

The highest incidences of meniscus injuries occur at 30 to 40 years of age, according to Dr. Keith Hechtman, Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute.

The specialist also says physicians repair ligaments where this slow point is the articular cartilage.

Although the patient has had a strong knee injury, if the articular cartilage is maintained, the results of the knee repair can be very good, he affirms.
