French to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general) / knee surgery
French term or phrase:réinsertion d\'un ménisque entier
just want to check: is this "resection of the whole meniscus" (or "total meniscal resection") - ? "Reinsertion" doesn't seem to be used in English really.
(I should have asked earlier...)
There are 2 possibilities depending on the situation. (There is not much context given.)
1) Either a damaged meniscus was replaced with another one, or
2) During exploratory surgery, the entire meniscus was removed then the same meniscus was put back.
In either case meniscal replacement may apply.

Explanation: I believe you need to stay close to the French here. The ruptured meniscus may have been taken out, sutured and reinserted. Using the term "replacement" covers it, but is not as precise as the French. "Reinsertion" is by no means unheard of and gives a clear indication that we are dealing with the same meniscus.
