Hello. A cure depends on the severity of your injury to the knee, and your options. Do you have your MRI report? Please upload it minus your name and I can explain it to you and maybe give you some direction. At your age, you can consider TKR, total knee replacement which has the potential to be a cure. But there are other factors, such as disorders, like obesity, or a family history of OA, that plays a role in deciding outcome. Please get back to me to discuss this further and I will reply. If you wish to discuss this over the phone, I can call you, but JA has an additional charge, let me know.
