Back on the Ice After Meniscus Surgery

Taryn Brandt took to the ice as a toddler and fell in love with figure skating. For more than 20 years, she has devoted thousands of hours to preparation for competition.

But the stress placed on her knee through the years, especially during jumps, caused her lateral meniscus to tear. Brandt’s condition led her to Karen Sutton, MD, an Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation expert at Yale Medicine.This short documentary looks back at Brandt’s complex diagnosis and recovery.
