Meniscus tears are a common cause of knee pain. There are many types of meniscus tears, and each can benefit from different types of treatment. Surgery may not be the best option. To actually have the meniscus heal on its own, consider Regenexx procedures. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP has good evidence to support its effectiveness. Injections of Bone Marrow Concentrate containing the patient’s own live stem cells can be used for more severe meniscus tears.
