A case of an arthroscopically implanted lateral Collagen Meniscus Implant in a 24-year-old professional soccer player is reported. This meniscal scaffold was able to improve knee function and reduce pain in this symptomatic meniscectomized young athlete at 36-month follow-up. This is the first case of an arthroscopic lateral collagen meniscal scaffold implanted in a high-level soccer player described in literature.
