Meniscus Repair Protocol

Keys to a Successful Outcome

  • Brace should be locked in full extension for the first post-op week.

  • Ice should be used liberally for the first two weeks

  • Only toe-touch weight-bearing is allowed for the first 4 weeks.

 

*Off for exercises and hygiene

**Twice-a-day, without brace, perform an "edge of bed dangle" and allow gravity only to bend the knee back as tolerated, but no more than 90 degrees. Keep bent for 1-5 minutes for a good stretch. Straighten the knee on your own once time is up, relax for a bit then bend again if desired.

***Toe-touch WB with brace locked in extension. Crutches used for gait.
