In brief: Repair
Suture repair of the torn cartilage or trimming of the frayed edges is often successful at treating torn cartilages.
Every effort to save as much of the tissue as possible is important.

In brief: Knee arthroscopy
Most tears that hurt, swell or cause a reduction in motion or activity will benefit from an arthroscopy to trim the tear.
