Arthroscopic surgery: Tears in the medial meniscus can be repaired, the torn piece removed, through arthroscopic surgery. It is much superior to open knee surgery. A good orthopedist can also clean up some of the degenerative changes in the knee during the procedure. General anesthesia not necessary. Recovery can be difficult and sometimes prolonged, but the long term results should be well worth it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This atmosphere makes it impossible for the ACL to heal (which I am assuming what you meant by diffuse). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
