Is surgery recommended for having partial acl tear and chondrosis?

I have had 2 acl repairs on my right knee...one in 1993 and the other in 1998. I ve been having increasingly worse knee pain. My MRI showed a partial acl tear, moderate knee effusion and chondrosis. I want to keep athletically active. I m thinking I should have surgery...I can t stand the pain and lack of movement. Would you recommend surgery?
