Brief Answer:
Yes ,,Surgery is required.

Detailed Answer:
Hi ,I am Dr Gopal Goel , Orthopedic Surgeon .
I have gone through your reports.
Your MRI Reports say that you have grade 3 injury in meniscus and grade 1 tear in ligament.This report seems to be incomplete .
For grade 3 tear in meniscus , surgery is required to remove the damaged part of the meniscus through arthroscopy. Ligament tear - which ligament ? bur gradw 1 does not need surgery .
I hope to have answered your question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
