Procedure

  • In the phase 1 procedure, the patient will undergo weeks of physiotherapy, to alleviate pain and inflammation (swelling).
  • This surgery is done under general anesthesia.
  • In ACL reconstruction, the torn ligament is removed and replaced with a piece of tendon from another part of your knee or from a deceased donor.
  • In this procedure, torn anterior cruciate ligament is replaced by drilling sockets or holes into the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone) with a segment of the tendon from another part of patient’s knee or from a donor.
  • The tissue which has been replaced is called a graft and is secured into your bones with screws or other internal fixation devices.
  • This graft will act as a scaffold for the regeneration of new cells and hence helps in reconstruction and regeneration.
  • After the procedure, the patient is asked to walk on support for some days and wear a knee brace or splint to help to immobilize the graft and support it’s healing.
  • It is vital to keep your leg elevated and rest as much as the patient can, to promote healing.
  • Over the counter pain, killer medications are prescribed to combat pain.
  • Ice packs are advised to help reduce post-surgical swelling.
  • A patient will be advised until how long he or she has to use crutches and when it will be safe to bear all of your weight on your knees.
