Depends...: Treatment of meniscus tears depend on your age, the type of tear, the amount of pain you are having, if you have any other issues (arthritis, ligament injures). Not all tears require treatment --- only some tears require treatment. Some can be treated observation, rest, activity modification, some tears will feel better with therapy, and others may require surgery. Talk w/ your doctor.

A 43-year-old female asked:

Yes meniscus tear: Meniscus root tears are a type of meniscus tear where the attachment to the bone is torn. This is a usually not a great type of tear to have as it effectively takes away all function of the meniscus (which is important to prevent arthritis etc). If patient is less than 45 with no arthritis, a meniscus root repair should be done. Otherwise meniscal resection is recommended. Meniscal root repairs are technically demanding, and are usually done by orthopedic surgeons with fellowship training in the sub specialty of sports medicine.
