Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Repair
Surgery for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries involves reconstructing or repairing the ACL. In an ACL reconstruction, your surgeon uses a graft to replace the ligament. The most common grafts use part of your own body, such as the kneecap tendon (patellar tendon) or one of the hamstring tendons. Other good choices include tissue from a donor.
