The meniscus is a soft tissue that connects the thigh bone to the shinbone. It plays a vital role in providing stability to the knee and absorbing the shock from activities that place pressure on the knee.

Today, meniscus tears are among the most common knee injuries. Athletes, sports players, and physically active people are exceptionally prone to tearing the meniscus. Additionally, this injury’s risk increases with age, as the bones and tissues around the knee begin to wear down.

Robert Fiore is an active young man who tore his meniscus and suffered extreme pain. He found Dr. Armin Tehrany and was immediately impressed by the fantastic reviews and praises from his patients.

He scheduled an appointment at Manhattan Orthopedic Care. After a few moments with Dr. Tehrany, he understood what inspired the reviews and the comments he read.

As a compassionate yet professional doctor, Dr. Tehrany spent enough time to explain Robert the nature of the injury. He also went into every detail of the treatment he recommended, the meniscus repair. Dr. Tehrany left nothing behind because he believes that the more patients know about the surgery they need, the more comfortable and at peace they will be. Ultimately, they’ll experience smoother recovery.

Dr. Tehrany and his team of exceptional professionals provided impeccable care for Robert before, during, and after his meniscus surgery. They ensured a gentle surgical experience that left Robert pleasantly surprised.

After the meniscus surgery, Dr. Tehrany ensured that Robert’s recovery period was also calm and comfortable, yet fast enough to help his knee heal in no time.

Excited that his surgical experience turned to be soothing and comfortable, he decided to share his gratitude beyond the walls of our office. He wrote a lovely review on Google that captivated us.

Had a tear in my meniscus a couple of weeks ago. From the first appointment to my post-op appointments, Dr. Tehrany and his staff have been great.

The day of the surgery was great. The hospital was clean and organized. Everyone there was professional and kept you comfortable and calm.

I would recommend them to anyone who needs the same thing done!

Thank you, Robert, for trusting us and allowing us to help you with your knee injury and improve your life.

This patient was treated at the Staten Island Office.
