Re: Votto has "minor" knee surgery
If it's truly a meniscus thing, then surgery is the best bet. I had a full tear in mine when I was about 20. Hobbling but still walked on it for a month. A week after the surgery I was back to jogging, a week after that I felt perfectly fine.
On top of that, JV is a world class athlete, which I am not, so hopefully his recovery is even better than mine was.
