Should Marathon Runners Get Surgery For Torn Meniscus?

Darien Daily Voice—October 4, 2016

In a recent article published by Darien Daily Voice, Robert G. Marx, MD, MSc, FRCSC, a sports medicine surgeon at HSS, advises readers on the implications of a torn meniscus for runners.

Dr. Marx explains what a meniscus is, how a tear can happen and what treatment options are.
 
"Small meniscial tears often do not require any treatment and may not even bother a patient. In fact, it is common for people to have an abnormal appearance of their meniscus on MRI but have no symptoms," said Dr. Marx.
