Hello, The various options for the treatment of this type of injury are non-operative treatment, partial meniscectomy and repair. The management decision depends on several factors. Repair is not indicated if the tear is stable, <10mm in length and <3mm into the joint or if the tear is not within the peripheral vascular zone of the meniscus which lies 3-5mm from the meniscosynovial junction. I hope this helps and you can consult an orthopaedic surgeon about various treatment modalities.
