It says in my operative notes that there is no evidence of meniscal tears. Then I have an MRI and it shows that I have a diplacement of mensical root?

In brief: Little complicated

As you can see from this picture, that the menscus have body and root, in this picture the root is torn but the body is not.

In brief: True

A tear in a meniscus is not the same as a displaced meniscus.
You can have one or the other or both.
