“The meniscus is located in a shallow cup of cartilage on top of the leg bone, one on each side. Knobs on the end of the thigh bone move in the meniscus when you bend your knee.

A tear often requires surgery, but it may not be the only option.” – ABC News 5/7/13

A torn meniscus, which is also known as torn cartilage in the knee does not necessarily require surgery as you might think.

See the full story here, from ABC News as Dr. Popovitz comments about alternatives to knee surgery for a torn meniscus.
