  • A Prospective, Non-randomized, Multi-Center Investigation of All-Suture-based Repair of Horizontal Meniscal Tears (STITCH Study)
    This study is seeking participants who may have a horizontal meniscus tear in their knee. Today it is unknown whether fixing a horizontal meniscus tear will result in a better outcome than the common approach of removing the tear. This research study will document whether a horizontal meniscus tear can hold together and heal if it is repaired with stitches. This study will also document any changes in knee pain and function after the procedure.
