In brief: Need arthroscopy

Usually arthroscopy can fully determine and often treat a torn meniscus.
Mri might be interpreted incorrectly and often a surgeon will either find the MRI not representing what they see during video arthroscopy. The ulcer however should be better explained as it can be due to a number of causes and treatment will vary depending on the cause. Find an orthopedic specialist who treats athletes.
