According to WebMD, the meniscus is a "piece of cartilage in your knee that cushions and stabilizes the joint". It protects the bones from wear and tear, but it can be torn if you suddenly twist your knee while bearing weight on it.

January shared two photos on Instagram, one showed her in bed at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Santa Monica wearing a gown, face mask, and a hair net. The other revealed her bandaged leg while resting at her $1.7m LA home.

Captioning the post, she wrote: "Possibly the cutest I’ve ever looked. Knee surgery thanks Dr. Gerhardt for fixing my meniscus. NBA here I come. #goWarriors #ImOnDrugs."

January sparked concern with this hospital selfie

January's former Mad Men co-star Christina Hendricks was among the first to comment, writing: "Oh I hope it all went smoothly!" One fan said: "I hope you have a speedy recovery," followed by praying hands and red heart emojis.

A second added: "Get well soon! Still looking stylish."

Another fan who went through the same surgery advised: "I just had it too. Make sure you go to all your rehab appointments and do the exercises at home also. The bicycle will be painful at first, will only be able to down like one turn the first visit! But quickly improves."

January had surgery on her knee

January's photos would have come as a shock to her followers as she usually shares bikini-clad selfies.

Last month, she worked her fans into a frenzy by posing in a black bikini that featured a bandeau top and corset-style briefs while hanging out by her home swimming pool.

Before that, she wowed in a pale pink one-piece with a plunging neckline and frill around the bottom.
