March 2021 Case of the Month

This month’s feature case is a young teenage figure skater that presented with chronic lateral sided knee pain following a surgical excision of a torn lateral meniscus. She was managed with an osteotomy ( cutting of the bone ) of the distal femur to correct her “knock knee” malalignment, along with a lateral meniscus allograft transplant. She had the plate and screws removed 4 years later. An arthroscopy was done in addition to the hardware removal. I hope you enjoy this short video. If you are experiencing pain, swelling, or other symptoms following meniscus surgery, you might be a candidate for a transplantation.
