Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction

A common injury, especially when injured while playing sports such as rugby, football and netball, an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear occurs when one of the four ligaments that connect the femur to the tibia is ruptured. You may experience some knee instability or have your knee give away while walking. This may put other important structures in the knee at risk of future injury. While this can be quite disconcerting, it can be rectified, as an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction helps to re-stabilize the knee, using a substitute graft made of tendon.
