In brief: No

Although we are always working to improve care, we have not developed a way to repair or fix all meniscal tears.
The meniscus itself is part of the problem as its healing potential is low. We just don't have great ways of manipulating biology yet. Luckily, we can treat the pain and symptoms that they cause in the mean time.
