Hey !!

Welcome here. There are 2 things you can do with tears. One is meniscectomy, when you take away the loose piece and trim the edge and the other one is meniscus repair when you sew the piece back on place. You can only sew the piece back where there is bloodsupply. Depending on what your doc is going to do makes rehab afterwards and the healing process shorter or longer. If you go down under specific topics Meniscus you can read a lot about these surgeries.
Good luck to you !!!
