In the knee joint there are two types of cartilage, articular cartilage and meniscal cartilage. The meniscus is a triangular shaped piece of fibro-cartilage that sits between the femur and tibia.

Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?

In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella, subcutaneous edema
When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably.

Painful cyst in left knee adjacent to posterior horn of medial meniscus. No meniscus tear (confirmed via MRI & arthroscopy). Treatment options?
See below:: Most cysts in the back of the knee are due to knee joint causes, which improve as the causes is treated. So my recommendations would be: 1: do nothing except maybe pain meds, for 3 months; if no improvement, then; 2: aspiration (removing fluid) under ultrasonic guidance for fluid/needle biopsy; or; 3: removal of the cyst through the back of the knee, to get tissue for biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If a repair is possible, that would typically be best. The meniscus is a shock absorber inside the knee, and with removal or meniscectomy, there is greater risk for arthritis. Every tear however cannot be repaired, and the tear pattern, location of tear, quality of tissue, and expectations of the patient need to be considered. There will be restrictions after surgery if the meniscus is repaired. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
