When to Consider ACL Reconstruction Surgery 

Your anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, is a critical ligament that helps stabilize your knee joint by connecting the thigh to the shin bone. It is crucial for activities involving sudden stops and direction changes, such as playing sports or running. ACL injuries can occur when the ligament is overstretched and commonly occur during sports that require a lot of stopping and turning, such as soccer.

If it is completely torn, your ACL cannot repair itself on its own. In that case, you will need reconstructive surgery to repair the damage. At Blackrock Orthopedics, we can determine if you need ACL reconstruction and can perform the procedure using cutting-edge techniques that may improve your outcome. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation.

What ACL Reconstruction Surgery Involves

ACL reconstruction involves harvesting a tendon from another part of your body or a donor and grafting it to your femur and tibia, aka your thigh and shin bones. This will restabilize your knee. Your surgeon will try to use one of your own tendons, if possible, which can improve your outcome. It is typically an outpatient procedure and takes about two hours.

What to Expect After ACL Reconstruction

After your surgery, you will need rehabilitation to ensure that you heal properly. This can take nine to twelve months and will vary depending on how well you heal. It can include various exercises to strengthen your knee and improve mobility.
