Doctor: HelloThank you for posting your query on ATD.I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Generally these tears doesn’t heal except if these are very very small because these are avascular ( not having blood supply). So these are excised / balanced by arthroscopy.Hope your query got answered.Wishing you a good health.Take care
