Acl Reconstruction Surgery
For best care our experts are there to help you
Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is designed to restore knee strength and stability after the ligament has been torn. Your ACL runs between the femur and the tibia and stops the tibia from slipping in front of the femur. In an ACL surgery/ligament tear treatment, the torn ligament is replaced with a tendon from another part of your knee or from a deceased donor.
Making the decision to have ACL surgery is quite important. Your doctor recommends ACL reconstruction surgery when-
Before ACL tear surgery, you will undergo several weeks of physical therapy. The goal before ACL tear treatment is to reduce pain and swelling, restore your knees full range of motion and strengthen muscles.
An ACL reconstruction surgeon will replace the damaged ligament with new ACL graft tissue that is either taken from your own body or donated from someone else. Most ACL reconstruction surgeries are performed under basic anesthesia. So, you'll be asleep during the surgery and not feel much. Ligament tear treatment usually lasts around a couple of hours, and you won't need to stay in the hospital overnight. For the ACL reconstruction, your ACL reconstruction surgeon will drill bone tunnels into the tibia and the femur, remove the torn ligament and place the ACL graft in the same position.
The possible complications associated with ACL reconstruction surgery include:
However, most anterior cruciate ligament surgeries are known to yield excellent results and restore full knee stability.
Your doctor will recommend you to incorporate lean protein (red meat, chicken or fish), dairy, and fresh citrus.
Femur: The bone of the thigh or upper hindlimb, articulating at the hip and the knee
Tibia: The inner and typically larger of the two bones between the knee and ankle (or the equivalent joints in other terrestrial vertebrates), parallel with the fibula.
