When can I return to activity after a meniscus surgery?

Although it will differ for every surgery and injury, general patients can expect to return to physical activity 4-6 weeks after having surgery for a torn meniscus. Sometimes there is a longer waiting period for contact sports. You also may have to wear a brace when you first begin participating in exercise and sports. For more serious tears and injuries this time may be up to 4 months.
