Brief Answer:
Surgery may be needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The tear of medial meniscus that you have can be treated conservatively with rest if the tear is a fresh one and is a partial thickness tear. In case the tear is an old one and is chronic then surgical repair of the meniscus and anterior cruciate ligament is needed for proper recovery.
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.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
