I am going for a knee surgery wednesday for oblique longitudial tear in the body and posterior horn of the medial meniscus , i guess a incearsed singal in the proximal acl , near the femoral attachment. I am wandering if i should have it done? i am 55 yrs old, the doc said the other knee had the cartlige removed 33 yrs ago and to do injections till it needs replaced. I also have a double fusion in the neck c5;c6;c7. I am having alot of head pain from that for the last yr. What do you think about the knee surgery?

best in my opinion as there are no chances with medicines
now a days there are minimal invasive surgeries and done by endoscopes with quickhealing and less recovert times
