While certainly some injuries are contraindicated to different movements, it really depends on the specific injury and the extent.
Having a muscle tear is different than multiple fractures with pins in your joints is different than tendon tears is different than cartilage loss - and all of it depends on the joint and your specific movement ability after that.
Your best bet is a really good physical therapist to tell you what movements are "probably never going to work for you", what kinds of movements are reasonable within years or months of recovery and what movements are safe right away.
While there are a few instructors in martial arts who are versed enough in the specifics of injury, recovery, body mechanics to do this kind of assessment, they are, unfortunately, more rare than you think. Many instructors have gone along with "Do this, it's good for your knees", "Just push through, eventually it'll stop hurting" and similar admonitions that have left healthy people with cartilage loss or other problems.
The person I would trust would be doing a long testing period of what your range of motion is, what your areas of unimpeded movement are vs. bound movement, and would be seriously considering what kinds of techniques to teach you from that, and then what strategies can best work with the mobility you have.
