A study was recently conducted on cases that involved patients that have had knee surgery due to their meniscus being worn out. The patients that were involved in the study had any other issues like arthritis or pain from bone on bone rubbing. The patients were divided into two groups. One group had surgery where the actual surgery was performed, the procedure shaved the rough edges of the meniscus. The test group simply was put under and an incision was made, nothing else was done. One year after this procedure was done both test groups reported no significant change.
The point that we are trying to make is that based on the study that was done, doctors could possibly face medical malpractice suits if they have been performing these surgeries with out a cause beyond the worn out meniscus.
