85 year old  torn meniscus in right knee,  pain/inflammation when walking.  Recommend hyaluronic acid joint injection? Other non-surgical therapies?

If your joint is in-: -good condition, a menisectomy would be advised, even if borderline. This can slow down further degeneration & possibly avoid a replacement.
