Lateral Miniscus Surgery

Hello,
I have recently been informed that I may have torn my lateral miniscus, which may need to be repaired surgically. Because I do not have health insurance, I am very nervous about this diagnosis. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much such a procedure tends to cost.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Nicole

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
