In brief: Orthopedic surgeon

It is not always necessary to have surgery for a torn meniscus as they are quite commonly found in many people who have no symptoms.
However at your young age an untreated torn meniscus can lead to other knee issues at a later time. Accordingly you should take the advice of a skilled orthopedic surgeon.
