Eagle and Summit County's Trusted Knee Surgeon

Dr. Terrell Joseph


Torn Meniscus Surgery 


One of the most common knee injuries we see in the active communities of Eagle and Summit County is a torn meniscus.  The menisci are C-shaped cartilage that acts as a cushion between the tibia and femur. Meniscus tears are usually caused by aggressively rotating or twisting your knee. Symptoms of a torn meniscus can include:


  • Pain

  • Stiffness

  • Swelling

  • Impacted range of motion

  • Knee instability or locking

When left untreated, a meniscus tear can significantly reduce your quality of life and lead to long-term knee issues in the future. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Joseph at his Frisco, Vail, or Edwards offices to diagnose the extent of your meniscus tear and get back to doing the activities you love.
