A 35-year-old female asked:

See below:-: A meniscus could either be repaired or treated with removal of the torn part of the meniscus; a tendon generally has to be repaired as otherwise its function would be lost. Sometime a torn tendon with loss of some of a part of it might need to be replaced with a tendon graft.

Arthroscopy: For a torn meniscus that requires surgery - arthroscopy - but not all torn meniscus require surgery .For a torn tendon - it depends. Some require open surgical repair but others can be treated by non operative methods.
