Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction Surgery
An ACL tear or injury can be treated depending upon the needs and the condition of the patient and relies on the type of the tea, the presence of the concomitant injury, functional demands of the patients.
The majority of the ACL can be managed by non-operative methods, provided the patient to understand the pros and cons of their injury. They should also understand the conservative treatment option and their determination in performing the exercise and a rehabilitation programme.
In some ACL cases, the doctor will recommend surgery to achieve the full functioning of the knee. The surgery decision depends upon various factors like how severe the injury is, the type of tear it is and the activity level of the person who is hurt
Few of the ACL tears can be repaired directly, which is also with the help of an augmentation device placed as a scaffold. But sadly, the majority of the ACL tears cant be restored. So to restore them and bring back the knee stability, the doctors reconstruct the ligament. The Best ACL Reconstruction Surgery Doctors in Chennai will replace the torn ligament with a tissue graft. This graft will work as the scaffolding fr the new ligament and provide stability.
The surgery of rebuilding the ACL is performed by arthroscopy. The doctor will make small incisions and operate; it is a minimally invasive surgery, so no large cuts are made.
Rehabilitation programmes play a major role in putting the patient back to their daily activities, whether the patient underwent surgery or not. A physical therapy at Sunway Hospitals helps the patient to regain knee strength and motion.
