Tearing your meniscus is scary. Maybe you (or one of your kids) landed badly from a jump and you felt a sharp pain in your knee. Maybe you planted your foot to change directions, and you felt a pop, and you struggle to put weight on your leg. Your knee swelled up, and you can't run or exercise like you want.
You go to see your doctor or an orthopedic surgeon, thinking you will get all the answers you need to recover. He takes x-rays of your knee, and maybe he orders an MRI. He tells you that you have a torn meniscus and that you need surgery.
Your mind is racing. You don’t really understand what the meniscus is, let alone what tearing it means for you. You don’t know why you need surgery, but you’re so shocked you don’t think to ask.
Plus, a lot of orthopedic surgeons use technical jargon, and patients like you with no medical knowledge don’t understand what the doctor is saying. What’s more, as you’re sitting on the exam table with your head now spinning with thoughts of surgery and being on crutches for a long time, you don’t even think to ask some key questions…
But between the few minutes you might get with your doctor or orthopedic surgeon, the failure to think of those critical questions as you deal with the shock of finding out you tore your meniscus, and the doctor’s confusing explanations, you leave the office more confused than you were before the visit.
What now? You could ask your friends, but you might not know anyone who has suffered a meniscus injury, especially someone trying to return to the same sport or who does the same kind of work you do.
You could search online for hours and hours, reading short articles and watching short videos. But you don’t know the quality of the information you’re getting on the internet. Plus, by going to all these different sites, you might get a lot of conflicting information, costing you valuable time and leaving you even more confused.
And yes, you could schedule another visit with your doctor or make an appointment with a second orthopedic surgeon. Seeing a doctor is always helpful because they can evaluate your knee and make recommendations specific to you. But office visits can cost a lot of money, and it can take weeks to get appointments with some surgeons.
You know my story by now if you've searched this subject at all...I’m Dr. David Geier, orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine expert. I provide education, information and commentary on sports and exercise injuries for athletes and active people so that you can stay healthy and perform your best.
I’m double board certified in orthopedic surgery and orthopedic sports medicine. Before I dedicated myself to helping people online understand and overcome injuries, I treated thousands of people in my practice who suffered meniscus injuries, and I still perform hundreds of these surgeries now. But now I am known all over the internet as the go-to guy for explanations of complicated orthopedic injuries using simple language that you can understand.
As I started my website, DrDavidGeier.com, and wrote articles and recorded videos and podcasts on sports and exercise injuries, my traffic grew quickly from people from all over the world trying to find information about their injuries. Hundreds of thousands of people come to my site each month looking for education and insight on injuries and injury treatments.
What I have found fascinating is that so many people struggle to get the answers they need about the meniscus injury they have suffered. I have received tens of thousands of questions over the years, and their questions largely boil down to two situations:
“Thank you for your advice and for your YouTube videos which are an excellent source of information. In Canada, where we have socialized medicine, we are lucky to get 5 minutes of our doctor's time; hence it is very helpful to have other sources of information available. Your YouTube videos answered my key questions perfectly - i.e. how to determine whether surgery is the best option, and when it is possible to return to sports after surgery. I found much of the material on the web was for physicians and was not suitable for the layperson; hence your videos, which were in basic English, were invaluable. Please keep up the good work. Thank you!”

My files are full to overflowing with documented success stories and unqualified praise like this...Almost every day, I get emails from people who use my injury information and are absolutely thrilled and amazed that the content has helped them get the answers they need to confidently make decisions about their care.. Fact is, I could fill more than 20 typewritten pages with amazing success stories just like these.
No special software necessary: You hear the audio and see the video as I explain every aspect of an meniscus tear that can help you as you try to decide what to do for your knee. I cover it all: How you tear your meniscus, who is likely to suffer the injury (and is at risk for reinjury), what common signs and symptoms you have with a torn meniscus, and tests a doctor will likely order to make the diagnosis. I'm showing you who can do well without meniscus surgery and who should consider surgery, what the surgery actually involves, important decisions to make regarding when you have surgery and how the procedure is done, and critical steps to take to recovery from surgery and return to what you love to do quickly and safely! You get training containing over one-hour's worth of information, in both video and audio formats, to watch now and refer back as often as you need to. You’ll see how that information helps you talk to your doctor and make the decision that is best for you and your family!

Recovery and return to sports
It would take you many days and nights scouring hundreds of sites and video channels. If your time is worth $100 an hour (and I bet your time is more valuable than that!), that time spent searching the internet could cost you several thousands dollars…and all that conflicting information from people you don’t know are truly knowledgable could leave you even more confused!
And I’d bet you won’t find any orthopedic surgeon, who would sit down with you for over an hour and teach you everything you need to know about your meniscus injury to help you return to the sport or exercise you love!
I do offer one-on-one discussions to explain injuries to people, but I charge about $1000 per hour … To be fair, $1000 or more would be a drop in the bucket compared to the incredible peace of mind and clarity you’ll possess knowing you are making the best decision for you and your meniscus injury.
Because you (or one of your kids) are struggling with a torn meniscus now, you can get the complete Meniscus Injuries Simplified training for only $97 ... Over the course of one year, that’s just 26 cents a day ... about one-fourth the cost of a newspaper you would read in the doctor’s office waiting for your appointment!
Can you think of a better way to spend 26 pennies than by learning the essential information you need about your meniscus injury so you can confidently take action and recover quickly and safely? I didn’t think so!

P.S. The time is now. Don’t wait until years have passed, and you might live in pain forever. Don’t see a second or third doctor because you don’t understand what the first one told you. Don’t have meniscus surgery without knowing the alternatives and what meniscus surgery and recovery entail. Will you take action?
