I am planning for arthroscopic knee surgery for medial meniscus tear.I have heard they will trim of  torn miniscus, isn't it reason for early arthritis?

No: Having surgery does not cause arthritis in and of itself. Injuring your knee/tearing the meniscus may lead to arthritis whether you have surgery or not. Once the meniscus is torn it (the torn part) is not functional. The reason for surgery is to eliminate pain and/or mechanical symptoms (locking, catching). You may develop arthritis in future from injury, not the surgery itself. ...Read more
