The meniscal roots are responsible for maintaining placement and stability of the meniscus, and patients who have sustained a meniscal root tear often require surgery to properly repair the root or a meniscectomy. Studies have shown that a meniscal root repair procedure results in less stress in cartilage post operation1. During this procedure, the root of the meniscus is often repositioned and fixated into its original anatomical attachment site using anchors or sutures.
