Meniscus tears can be painfully annoying. The knee loses its mobility and becomes stiff. Because of that, it becomes a source of frustrating discomfort and pain.

Meniscus tears are among the most common knee injuries. They can occur due to trauma to the knee or the aging process and the knee’s wear and tear. Moreover, some people can be more susceptible to meniscus tears than others. Unfortunately, they might need to go through more surgical procedures. It is imperative to guide such patients calmly in a comfortable environment where they can focus solely on their recovery.

Jennifer was one of the patients who visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care due to meniscus tears more than once. Each time she visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care, she experienced the same level of care. Surgical experiences are always stressful. Regardless of the number of previous surgeries, each new surgery creates discomfort and anxiety. That’s why, when Jenniffer came in for her second meniscus repair surgery, we provided the same comfort as we did when she had her first knee meniscectomy.

Knee meniscectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that surgeons perform to remove the damaged portion of the meniscus. Dr. Tehrany has performed numerous knee meniscectomies throughout his career. However, he approaches and commits to each patient and surgery with the highest level of attention and care.

Jennifer was no exception. Her second knee meniscectomy has left her feeling strong and happy that her painful agony was behind her. Satisfied with the superb care the entire team provided to her, she shared her experience with a heart-melting review on Google.

“I cannot rave enough about Dr. Terhany, PA Lopresti, and the entire staff. I had a second meniscus repair surgery this summer with Dr. Terhany. I respect and appreciate the professionalism shown to me by Dr. Terhany. He answered all of my questions, addressed my concerns, and provided honest feedback once I was diagnosed.

PA Lopresti was a wealth of knowledge and works in tandem with Dr. Terhany. The staff is professional, polite and the office runs like a finely oiled machine.

I will continue to use Dr. Terhany because he provides top-notch care and truly cares about his patients.”

This patient was treated at the Staten Island Office.
