Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) is a surgical tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, to restore its function after anterior cruciate ligament injury. All Island Orthopaedics physicians are specialized in treating such conditions. But how do we perform ACL reconstruction? There are two alternative replacement materials for ACL reconstruction. Autografts where bone or tissue is harvested from the patient's body and allografts where some bone or tissue from a donor's body is used. But how we select the right graft? Typically, age and lifestyle choices help decide the type of graft to be used for ACL reconstruction. The overall factors in knee stability are correct graft placement by the physician and treatment of other menisco-lignament injuries in the knee, rather than type of graft. The advantages of an allograft are that the patient does not sustain an additional injury through removal of a tendon.
Every surgery requires some preparation. Removing the anxiety is one of our top priorities, from medication and home planning to recovery and rehabilitation, our team of orthopedic physicians are here to help and will guide you through every step.
The All Island Orthopedics team wishes its patients in Laurelton a speedy and full recovery.
