The operative procedure which has been presented allows complete removal of a meniscus of the knee through a single skin incision and a double capsule incision, avoiding the possibility of injury to the patellar branch of the saphenous nerve and the presence of a second skin cicatrix. All lines of incision are in the direction of tissue structure and are so located as to avoid strain on knee motion.
