Had to have surgery for the repair and then physical therapy. How could just PT help it without the repair?

2 . "I have had 2 torn meniscus repair surgeries and then eventually a total knee replacement."

The physical therapists came to my house twice a week for 6 weeks then I had to go there for 12 more weeks. I thought I would never again walk without a limp but little by little they had my knee working like it was supposed to! I haven't had any knee problems at all since then. I don't think I could say that without having the surgeries.

3 . "See Inside"

I don't understand how PT alone would resolve the situation completely.
If you have any torn piece inside, every time you move the knee that
piece will be irriated and hurt.

The surgery is pretty easy and you are released a few hours after surgery.
