Acl tear left knee

I had a acl tear in my left knee 7 years ago. This happened during a game of hockey. After which an orthopedist suggested plaster for my left knee. And after a month the doctor said everything is good. I got pain again in the same knee a month back. Went for an MRI and doc suggested surgery. Is surgery the only option?
