Yikes: The wear on your lateral side and lateral meniscus tear is a not great. The lateral meniscus is responsible for balancing and distribution of force more so than the medial. Be very cautious returning to plant and pivot sports. ...Read more

Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion ,Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means
Arthritis and tear: The cartilage loss is similar to saying you have degenerative arthritis setting up in your knee. The meniscus is a cartilage cushion present in your knee, there is one present medically and one lateral, and you have a tear in one as well. I would go through your MRI with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. ...Read more
Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?
Surgery : Surgery is most likely needed to resolve your problem. Meniscus tears simply do not heal on their own, regardless of conservative treatment (including prolotherapy). It is possible that your symptoms of pain, etc will improve with time without surgery...But that doesn't mean the tear healed. 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. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more

Advanced articular cartilage loss in medial compartment of tibio-femoral and patella-femoral joints. Would partial (unicondylar) knee replacement work?
Maybe: This decision is best made by your own orthopedist who has direct access to your x rays. A second opinion never hurts. In someone so young, if you can get away with something short of a total joint replacement, it is always preferable to do so. ...Read more
What is mild lateral excursion to the patella with focal subchrondral bone marrow along the median ridge inferior patella? overlying chondromalacia
Weak VMO-LrgQ angle: The VMO ->the medial part of quadriceps muscle, when relatively stronger, it can help your patella (knee cap) track in the middle of its groove. As you grow, hips get wider and that increases the Q angle (look it up). Strengthen your VMO with Quad Sets. Put a Coffee can under your knee straighten- hold. Toes in X20, toes strait X10, Toes out X10. VMO works w/ toes in. incr. to 100/50/50. Ice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Small meniscal root tear, high grade chondral fissuring partial thickness on the medial femoral condyle, grade 4 chondromalacia patella is this bad?
Try conservative rx: Seems like most of the damage is under the patella. If you have locking you might need arthroscopy, I would first try terminal extension excercises training the quads without putting much pressure on the patella. In addition research has shown that Asperin could help the surface cartilage heal. In addition, MSM (Puritan Pride) could be helpful as a nutraceutical supplement. ...Read more

Obviously you have -: -symptoms, so if the trouble is locking, giving way, the findings indicate a mechanical problem in the knee. You need to follow the advice of your orthopedic surgeon who is familiar with your case, especially if you have treated with him/her for a while. The surgery is only driven by your symptoms. The thing to remember is there is no orth prob so severe that it can't be made worse by surgery. ...Read more
