Anterior cruciate ligament also known as the ACL, is one of the major ligaments in the knee joint. Injury to the ACL happens generally happens whilst playing sports involving frequent direction changes like Football, Cricket, Squash, Tennis, etc. A tear in the ACL causes a feeling of losing control of the knee on movement often referred as Knee Instability.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear often requires ACL reconstruction. This is a very common and a very successful procedure. This surgery allows patients to return to their active lifestyle especially those wanting to play sports again.
The ACL reconstruction surgery is performed with knee arthroscopy and using patients own hamstring tendons to replace the injured ACL. This is attached to the knee by making bone tunnels and securing the new ligament, which tightens the knee and restores stability.
The rehabilitation following surgery begins immediately and does through to 3 phases of physiotherapy. This eventually makes the person ready for sports in 4 to 6 months.
