In brief: See Orthopedist

A tear of the posterior medial meniscus, the most common area of occurence, may well need arthroscopic surgery - you should consult an orthopedic surgeon.

In brief: See an Ortho surgeon

An orthopedic surgeon can review the MRI and do a thorough physical examination to determine whether there is a need for surgery vs.
Conservative treatment. Though there is some variation in the grading systems of meniscal signal abnormalities on mri, grade iiia usually means a simple tear.
