The meniscus (or menisci, as there are two in each knee, a lateral and a medial meniscus) is a circular ring of soft cartilage that is found between the femur and the tibia bone in the knee. It functions as a shock absorber and disperses the pressure across the knee with weight bearing activities. There are many different types of meniscus tears and while some will require surgery, many will not, and could benefit from meniscus tear treatment by stem cells and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapies.
