ACL Reconstruction in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

The ACL (antenior cruciate ligament) is a ligament in the knee that connects the front top of the tibia (the lower leg bone) to the rear bottom of the femur (the thigh bone) and helps provide stability to the knee joint. ACL tears are the most common knee injuries and are a result of landing and planting the foot in a cutting or pivoting sport, with or without contact. ACL reconstruction is a procedure that involves replacing or repairing the damaged or torn ACL ligament.

The surgery uses a graft to replace the ligament and the most common grafts are autografts, which is using a part of your own body such as the patellar tendon or the hamstring tendon. Another choice is the allograft tissue, which is taken from a cadaver.

ACL Reconstruction surgery is necessary to restore normal or almost normal stability in the knee and the level of function you had before the knee injury and to prevent future injury to other knee structures. Not all ACL tears require surgery. Let us help with your knee pain.

If you are experiencing knee pain, weakness of the knee, swelling of the knee, or stiffness of the knee, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
