Brief Answer:
He definitely needs surgery.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

I have gone through the reports. As per the scan report, there is complete tear of the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) attachment along with tear in the posterior horn of Lateral meniscus. Both these injuries are clinically significant and needs to be addressed by surgical management.

As your brother is of very young age (only 25 years), surgery is definitely indicated. If both the problems are not addressed properly, it may lead to severe degenerative arthritis (damage to the XXXXXXX surfaces of the joint) in the near future.

ARTHROSCOPIC ACL RECONSTRUCTION is the treatment of choice in your brother's case and the Meniscal tear will also be addressed in the same sitting without any need for second operation.

So, I suggest you to consult a good Arthroscopic surgeon in your area having adequate exposure and experience in dealing with ACL reconstruction surgeries.

Hope I have addressed your query. Happy to help further
