Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Brijendra Gupta's  Response
Thanks for consulting
Locking knee is most of the times is due to Meniscus tear.
- Try to straight knee gently.
- Get an MRI done.
- It will show tear of medial or lateral Meniscus.
- It will need Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy. ( Endoscopic removal of cut part of meniscus).
- After that you will not face such problem and go back to your working
