Recent advances in the surgical management of meniscal problems (arthroscopic meniscectomy or meniscal repair) have been associated with far less morbidity postoperatively. Aggressive rehabilitation programs using innovative devices have allowed the patients an early return to normal activities or competition. Even with the best surgical technique, rehabilitation of the hamstring and quadriceps musculature is necessary to provide the patient with an optimal surgical result.
