In brief: Articular/meniscal
For meniscus-surgery.

In brief: Depends
There are several factors involved.
The location of the damaged cartilage is important. The extent of damage is paramount. Several surgical options exist depending on the specific diagnosis. I would suggest consultation with orthopedic surgeon to get proper workup and discuss options.
