Hi Chris, thanks for reading. From my experience, we typically plan a meniscus repair around 6 weeks slower than a typical timeframe for an isolated autograft ACL reconstruction. All things being equal, I would usually aim to start the content listed in ‘Stage 3’ somewhere around 16 weeks post-op. Hope that helps.
