This requires: a comprehensive medical history, physical examination of the knee and radiographic studies to know if the meniscal problem makes you a surgical candidate or not. Take care.

Probably not.: From what you report, the meniscal changes do not require surgery because there is no true meniscal tear, but talk to your doc about your options.
