Health Sachet No 289:
You may know people who have undergone surgeries for knee meniscus tear and spinal fusion. But, the medical evidence for added benefit from them, as compared to non-surgical treatments such as physiotherapy, is zero.
‘Useless‘ surgeries, they are called.
Next time, before consenting to such a surgery, check and double-check because as they say, if you are given a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Spinal fusion and knee meniscal tear surgery may not be more beneficial than simple physiotherapy. Take proper medical opinion.
