In brief: Yes

Get evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who will refer you to a physical therapist.
Pt will work with you on best exercises to strengthen the knee without further damage. This will optimize your function whether or not the next step is surgery.

In brief: Torn ACL Rehab

Yes, there are a variety of exercises you can do for a torn acl.
Not all people with torn acl's need surgery. Many are able to function just fine (although they sometimes do have to limit certain activities). A trained physical therapist will be able to work with you to give you a good exercise program specifically for you.
