Incomplete Meniscus
An_245064 posted:

I've been playing soccer for a number of years and a few months ago started getting pain in my knee. I had an MRI done and what was found was an incomplete discoid meniscus, with no indication of a meniscus tear.

I'm currently waiting to meet with a surgeon, but I'm trying to understand what the options might be. There's plenty of information on meniscus tears, but very little on treatments for incomplete meniscus. Would anyone know what the options are for treating an incomplete meniscus?

Thanks in advance

I found an old post with information on an incomplete meniscus that might help. Click here:

Good luck when you meet with the surgeon!

Thanks - well the good news is that the surgeon figures that the injury is not related to the incomplete meniscus and so he's recommending physiotherapy rather than surgery.
