In brief: Depends

Being diagnosed with a ligament tear and being referred to an orthopedic surgeon, likely means a condition that is at least moderately serious.
If not done already, the next step may be some type of x-ray study (mri, ct scan, etc.) or more extensive testing by the orthopedic surgeon.
