Best Knee Arthroplasty in New Delhi

A Meniscal Tear is a type of  knee injury that happens when our knee is damaged due to any strenuous physical activity. The lower and upper leg bones meet at the knee joint, and the meniscus is the flexible and C-shaped disc that is situated in its middle part. Each knee has two menisci one on the outer part and other at inner side.
Any physical activity that needs twisting, turning and rotating your knee can cause the meniscus tear. Sports persons especially those who play contact sports like football, tennis or basketball are having the higher risk of the meniscus tear.
