In this video, Dr Charlie Brown presents a case study highlighting why saving the meniscus is important to knee alignment and functional outcomes. He presents facts on how keeping as much of the meniscus in the knee as possible can lead to better outcomes. His case shows a 15 year old girl who had a meniscectomy, then one year later required a microfracture, meniscal allograft and osteotomy.
