Meniscus Injuries

Meniscus tears can occur in children and adolescents during sporting events or even playing. Some children are born with abnormal meniscus tissue called a discoid meniscus that can cause pain and popping. Dr. Minnock is trained to treat a variety of meniscus tears in children as young as 6 years old. Meniscus repairs are typically repaired if possible in children and adolescent patients to preserve the shock-absorbing function of the meniscus tissue.
