This study was done to examine the relationship between size and type of meniscus injury and the development of osteoarthritis (OA).
This study involved 32 patients who developed OA in their knees, and 63 patients of similar age, same sex, and body mass index who did not develop OA.

In all patients, knee characteristics were examine (presence/location/size of meniscus tears).
Knees with meniscus tears with greater radial involvement and extrusion were at higher risk for development of OA.
Save your meniscus and prevent future arthritis by repairing it with the most technologically advanced system invented by Dr. Saliman
Dr. Justin Saliman, a seasoned knee orthopedic surgeon, invented the Edison Award winning “Novo Stitch Pro Meniscal Repair System” to arthroscopically sew back all meniscus tear types – including those previously considered difficult or impossible to sew.
Minimally-invasive, the system involves a “Circumferential Stitching Technique” that has proven superior to traditional meniscus repair techniques. As a result, patients heal pain and dysfunction while preventing arthritis and knee surgical replacement in the long-term.
Justin D. Saliman, MD, located in Beverly Hills, is a Stanford sports medicine trained orthopaedic surgeon operating out of Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
He is the founder of Ceterix® Orthopaedics and the inventor of the NovoStitch® Pro Meniscal Repair System, which was acquired by a large medical device company called Smith & Nephew in 2019.
The device was granted FDA approval in 2012 and Dr. Saliman has been using it to preserve knee joints ever since.
Nobody has more experience sewing meniscus tears
back together than Dr. Saliman.
He is specialized in joint preserving minimally invasive techniques to repair injuries to the knee to prevent arthritis and the need for joint replacement later in life.
Dr. Saliman completed a sports medicine fellowship at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, where he cared for the San Francisco 49ers and the athletic teams at Santa Clara and Stanford Universities.
Prior to his fellowship, he completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at the prestigious St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center of Columbia University in New York City. He earned his medical degree at the University of Colorado School of Medicine outside his hometown of Denver.
