Ask An Orthopedist: Meniscus Repair

Calendar June 6, 2017

Question: I had meniscus surgery five days ago and am experiencing small, painless clicks where my meniscus was shaved off. Is this normal? I got them before my surgery, but they were bigger and happened when I jumped or ran.

Yes this is normal. The clicks will slowly but surely get less and less over the next few weeks. If they become worse and painful then you need to talk to your surgeon.
