Although minor damage to the cartilage may heal by itself, more severe injuries usually need surgical treatment. This is normally carried out using keyhole surgery as a day case under a light general anaesthetic. In more complex cases, other procedures may be advised as well. These include knee realignment surgery (osteotomy).
