Suggest treatment alternative to surgery for treating large meniscus tear in the left knee
Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query and concern,meniscus tear if large ,as in your case, will not heal without surgery.
If you go for surgery than you should go for arthroscopic surgery ,in this recovery is very fast.
If you want to avoid surgery than you can do hot fomentation ,physiotherapy and take diacerine 50 mg BD for three month,inj cortizone or you can take aceclofenac and paracetamol 2-3 times daily for pain.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Physical therapy will help.
Thanks for writing again.
You can start with quadriceps drill to strengthen the muscles around the knee joint. The strengthened muscles will help in decreasing the load on the knee. Wearing a pair of knee supports for an extra support will also help. A hot compress is a better option as it will relax any muscle spasm also.
You can walk for an exercise but avoid climbing stairs, running or walking on a uphill surface.
Hope my answer is helpful.
