Knee osteoarthritis/Meniscal degeneration

Intro: Osteoarthritis of the knee is a degenerative joint disorder that may manifest the elderly naturally or in individuals with prior injury. Sometimes there may also be degeneration or degenerative tear of the meniscus involved as well.

Symptoms: Pain and decreased motion of the knee.

Treatment: Weight loss, physical therapy, and medications. A steroid or hyaluronic acid injection may help provide relief as well. When nonoperative modalities fail, surgery on the meniscus or knee replacement surgery may be considered.
