The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), located in the center of your knee, keeps your knee stable and lets you move that joint with confidence.
An ACL tear can cause your knee to give way during physical activity or everyday movement. It may produce knee pain and lead to early arthritis.
Surgeons at the Abington Orthopedic & Spine Institute – Jefferson Health use the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques to reconstruct and replace your torn ACL with a new ligament. You lose the pain and regain your ability to walk and play sports with stability.
Advanced ACL Repair
ACL reconstruction removes your damaged ligament and rebuilds it. Our surgeons conduct the procedure using a fiberoptic camera inserted through a mini-incision in your knee.
The vital repair of your torn ACL is made with tendon tissue from your own body or donor tissue. Using specialized instruments, our surgeons bring the new tissue through your knee. As the reconstruction heals, the bone fills in and further secures the rebuilt ligament.
Rehabilitation individually tailored for you is key to your recovery. Your surgeon and physical therapist will develop a regimen suited to your needs.
