Brief Answer:
Meniscal repair is required in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir

I have worked through your query in detail.

I have worked through your attached report.

You seem to have coexisting injuries in anterior, medial and posterior cruciate ligaments.

This requires surgical correction at the earliest.

Surgery in the form in the form of partial menisectomy or meniscal repair is required.

Arthroscopic approach is usually done at expert centres to treat this kind of meniscal injuries .

Consultation with an expert orthopedician will help.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
