    Torn Meniscus and Surgery

    So I've got a torn meniscus...second one in less than a year. Yeah - ugh!

    Anyway, I've opted for surgery, and I think that my doctor is planning on a partial menisectomy, like she performed last year, but I've been doing a lot of research, and it shows that people tend to fare better long term when they have repairs instead partials.

    Can I ask my surgeon if she can try to do a repair? I know that sometimes repairs aren't physiologically possible, but I would rather save as much of whatever is left of my meniscus if I can. You know?

    What are your thoughts? And how should I approach my doctor?

    Thanks!
