Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction

To repair a torn ACL, we utilize arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive technique that promotes quicker recovery for patients. During ACL reconstruction, the damaged ligament is replaced with a tissue graft, which can be sourced from either a donor (allograft) or the patient’s own body (autograft). The graft is inserted through small bone tunnels and positioned precisely where the damaged ACL was located. It is then secured to the bone using screws or other implants.

The Benefits of Arthroscopic Repair

Allograft Tissue Replacement

  • Less Postoperative Pain: Patients often experience less pain immediately after surgery.
  • Faster Return to Activities: Typically allows for a quicker resumption of daily activities.
  • Best for Certain Patients: May not be ideal for highly active, competitive athletes due to the higher demands placed on the graft.
  • Quality Assurance: We source allografts from top-tier tissue banks that adhere to the highest standards of tissue processing to ensure optimal outcomes.

Autograft Tissue Replacement

  • Natural Approach: Uses the patient’s own tissue, which is biologically compatible.
  • Source of Graft: Involves taking a tendon from the patient’s own hamstring or kneecap.
  • Lower Risk of Re-tear: Particularly beneficial for athletes under 30, with a lower likelihood of graft re-tearing.
  • Longer Recovery: Generally requires a longer recovery period compared to allografts.

Each graft option has its own advantages and suitability depending on the patient’s activity level and specific needs. Our expert team ensures personalized care and optimal surgical outcomes for each individual.

Who would benefit from ACL Reconstruction?

ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) reconstruction is typically recommended for individuals who experience significant knee instability or functional limitations due to a torn ACL. While not all ACL tears require surgery, reconstruction may be considered in the following situations:

  • Active individuals involved in sports or activities requiring cutting, pivoting, and jumping.
  • Young individuals with ACL tears prone to recurrent instability and long-term complications.
  • Those experiencing significant functional limitations affecting daily activities or work.
  • Individuals with combined ligament injuries in the knee.
  • Patients with persistent symptoms despite conservative treatments.
  • Those experiencing recurrent episodes of knee instability during physical activities.

Benefits of Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction Over Traditional Surgery

  • Minimally Invasive: Smaller incisions lead to less tissue damage and reduced scarring.
  • Enhanced Visualization: The arthroscope provides a clear and magnified view of the knee joint, allowing for greater surgical precision.
  • Faster Recovery: Less invasive techniques result in quicker healing times and a faster return to daily activities and sports.
  • Reduced Pain: Smaller incisions and less tissue disruption typically result in less postoperative pain.
  • Lower Risk of Complications: Minimally invasive surgery reduces the risk of infection and other complications.
  • Better Cosmetic Outcomes: Smaller scars are more cosmetically appealing and heal more quickly.
  • Improved Outcomes: Enhanced precision and visualization can lead to better alignment and functionality of the repaired ligament.
