Patient :Hi I have had knee pain and a recent Mri. I don't know how bad the results are&need some clarification. I have a chondral 5mm ulcer and grade 4 chondral fissuring in the femoral trochlear groove as well as a 5mm chondral loose body in joint near meniscus does this suggest that I need surgery?
