Arthroscopic Surgery: If you have symptoms ( swelling, effusion, locking , catching , giving out. Etc) and you had MRI scan then yes you should consider a'scopic acl reconstruction and meniscal repair or partial menisectomy if you have sedentary life , play no sports and do not have many symptoms then you may try physical therapy for 4-6 weeks.
