It has been proven beyond doubt that meniscus is absolutely necessary for the 'total knee health'. Therefore, surgeons the world over are becoming more aggressive in retaining the meniscus tissue than performing menisectomy. We present here a review of literature about meniscus repair and describe the technique of inside out type of meniscus repair used by the author. The duration of follow up is from 12 months to 3 years. Preliminary reports of results of these cases are presented. Indications and the technique used for meniscus repair are discussed. We repair only longitudinal tears in the vascular zone or in the junction of vascular and avascular zones. Proper patient and tear selection will result in good success of the meniscus repair.
