Study: Some knee surgeries may do little to ease pain
December 26, 2013 (WLS) -- A new study shows that minimally invasive knee surgeries may do very little to help ease the pain in some patients.
Volunteer patients all received anesthesia and incisions but only some patients received actual surgery, while others had simulated ones.
They did not know which.
After a year, most patients in both groups said their knees felt better.
Researchers say some patients who develop problems with their meniscus may benefit more from physical therapy.
