Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I think you will need a MRI of the knee joint. This will show us if there is meniscus tear, or ACL injury. I would suggest you to meet a arthroscopic surgeon . You might need a ligament surgery. If any surgery is suggested then go ahead with them.
