Hello I'm Dr Chip
How old are you?
And are you athletic in the sense of regular exercise, golf, sports, etc?
The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it
First off, you could--if you will--just live with this.
But considering what you've just told me, if I were your doctor, I'd suggest the arthroscopic surgery just to clean up the edges of the torn meniscus since it sounds like that's still causing you some problem
If you don't have the surgery the problem may well get worse over time and that might make the surgery more difficult at a later date
Please let me know if you need any more information
Yes it can and with your being as active as you are it could well get worse unless it's trimmed a bit
My pleasure and call on me anytime
