Surgery?: A torn medial meniscus usually does not heal, the ligament sprain will heal on its own. If you are having pain, locking or instability, then you may need arthroscopic surgery to treat the meniscus tear.
Dr. Harry Zegel

See answer: Arthroscopic surgery for the meniscus followed by joint exercise /rehabilitation may be appropriate – talk to your orthopedic surgeon.
