If you've been scheduled for an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair, you probably have some questions. Our guide offers the answers you're looking for and helps you prepare for your operation.
ACL stands for anterior cruciate ligament. Ligaments are bands of tissue that connect bones. The ACL is a ligament that is in the centre of your knee and helps your knee move. When the ACL is torn or injured, repair surgery may be needed to help you move your knee normally again and make the muscles around your knee stronger.
During the operation, your surgeon will reconstruct the ligament. There are several specific methods for repairing the ACL. Your surgeon will choose the type of transplant based on your specific need. In most cases, patients will go home the same day of the surgery.
