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.
