    depending upon where and how the tear is the Dr will recommend either surgery or leaving it alone until surgery is absolutely necessary.

    I heard yesterday about someone getting a knee repair with stem cells.  That may be an answer.

    Regarding the stem cell, I met someone oh had it done when I was I Florida.  Keep in mind they don't have the same health care plans that Canada and the UK have.  It took two treatments each cost 10,000.  I know this is too new to be done here orally, but perhaps in the bigger centres.  It's definitely not well known here yet.

      Our stem cell MD here charges about $1800+ per session of stem cells which now seem to be used mostly for very advanced knee issues. I'm in So. Cal.

      He charges $850 per session of PRP which I have not ruled out....

      I'm using a new supplement Ligaplex II which helps to restore ligaments and tendons and it's MAIN mineral is Manganese needed for bone integrity.

    Sorry, I guess I added to the wrong thread.  My apologies.  I should put my glasses on my often.  For me I had a torn menisus and they never repair, or cut it which wax a mistake in my opinion.  I don't know much about them though.  I hope yours heal and doesn't cause you any more pain.

      It seems the miniscus is one of those areas that depends on severity and who and where the drs are. My friend ESS playing golf in Hawaii and tore his swinging the club....he was in so much pain they cut the vacation short and the drs in Hawaii had forwarded the tests results to his ortho here in middle america. 2 days after getting home they did surgery and sewed up the tear. My sister in law tore hers shortly before they were to leave on a European river cruise which was already paid for. The Dr injected the leg and by not doing any of the strenuous hikes and climbing, regular icing and low grade pain meds she got through the trip and had it repaired within a few days of her return. With both of these, physical therapy was an intregal part of the healing process. As far as interepting the scans, I would think you would need a radiologist for accuracy. Good luck
