ACL RECONSTRUCTION: DETAILS OF THE PROCEDURE

One of the primary ligaments in your knee is the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). While there are some ACL injuries that can heal with physical therapy, many require reconstruction of the ligament. ACL reconstruction is typically recommended if you want to continue with an active lifestyle. This procedure will repair the damaged ACL by using a tissue graft. Modern advancements in the repair of ACL have allowed for faster recovery times and reduced complications. Here at Plymouth Bay Orthopedic Associates, we encourage you to learn more about ACL reconstruction and how it can help you.

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

During the procedure, an arthroscopy camera will be inserted into your knee and give the surgeon enhanced precision. A tissue graft will be used to stabilize the knee, after which you will be given special instructions for the healing process.

Our six extensively trained orthopedic surgeons have over seventy years combined experience treating injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament. At our office we implement the latest technology and techniques to give you the very best minimally invasive arthroscopic procedure. Whether you’re looking to get back to the gym, on the hiking trail, or any other sort of athletic activity, we will be here to help you on your journey to recovery.
