ACL reconstruction

ACL reconstruction – The anterior cruciate ligament, also known as ACL, is one of the main ligaments in your knee that provides stability to the knee joint. ACL injuries often occur during sport and fitness activities that place stress on the knee e.g. changing direction rapidly or landing incorrectly from a jump. 

If your ACL is torn, the orthopaedic surgeon will replace it with a portion of tendon from another part of your body. This is known as tendon grafting. 

The surgery is usually minimally invasive and performed using arthroscopy as a day case procedure.
