Injuries don’t just keep us from playing sports or exercising. They can keep us out of school and work. In this Ask Dr. Geier video, I discuss the process of returning to work after a meniscus surgery to treat a meniscus tear.
Hello doctor. I am 24 years old. I had a meniscectomy surgery. I had a partial tear in the lateral meniscus. After surgery, I could walk without any problem. How much time will it take me to recover and get back to work? I work as a chef.
Return to work after meniscus surgery
A partial meniscectomy surgery involves trimming out the torn portion of meniscus. It is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries. While it is a surgery that can keep you from playing or exercising for weeks, recovery is much quicker than a meniscal repair.
In this video, I explain the process of recovering from a partial meniscectomy. I also discuss how a patient can return to work and what factors play a role.
