Meniscal Transplants

For many patients, due to various reasons, they no longer have enough functional meniscus left to protect their knee and allow for normal daily activities. When this is the case, a meniscal transplant may be recommended by Dr. Lowe as the best treatment option.

Indications for a meniscal transplant are as follows:

  • Absence of adequate amount of meniscus tissue.
  • Significant joint pain

In order for a meniscal transplant to have the highest potential for success, the patient must have good articular surfaces. Patients with moderate to severe arthritic changes are not good candidates for a meniscal transplant procedure.

During your office visit and consultation, Dr. Lowe will discuss with you any recommendations, indications and precautions. He will also explain the possibilty if a meniscal transplant is right for you.
