Meniscus Injury: Tear in the lateral or medial meniscus of the knee.
Non-operative vs. surgery treatment depends on the type of tear and the location/zone of tear.
Red on Red Zone: receives most blood supply; most likely to heal without surgical intervention
Red on White Zone: receives some blood supply; may or may not heal without surgical intervention
White on White Zone: receives little to no blood supply; most likely will require surgical intervention to repair the tear
