Meniscus tears can occur suddenly during a sports game, or from simple daily activities such as turning to put dishes away or twisting when someone calls your name. Damage to the meniscus, which cushions your knee joint can also result from years of wear and tear. Duke knee specialists evaluate the severity of your injury, where it’s located, and the health of your knee joint before recommending meniscus surgery or another treatment.
