Nicholas Colyvas, MD, presents the arthroscopic repair technique for a 36-year-old male police officer with a medial meniscus root tear with a bone fragment. Dr. Colyvas demonstrates how the fragment is placed back in proper position, the preparation of the fragment, tibia bed and the meniscocapsular surface and the final fixation. This procedure allowed the patient to return to full activity four months after surgery.
