What Happens During ACL Surgery?

ACL reconstruction surgery is a procedure that involves replacing a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). During the procedure, the surgeon will remove the torn ligament and replace it with a graft tendon. Graft tendons can come from another part of the patient’s knee or from an organ donor.

ACL surgery is usually completed as an outpatient procedure, which means you’ll be able to return home soon after your surgery has been completed rather than stay at the hospital overnight. Your doctor will provide a recovery plan following surgery, which may include taking pain medication, elevating your knee, icing your knee, and resting. While you will likely require several months of recovery time, a successful ACL surgery can restore full function to your knee.

When Is ACL Surgery Necessary?

Many ACL injuries can be treated using nonsurgical methods, like physical therapy. However, there are cases in which nonsurgical methods are not enough to help the patient recover fully. ACL reconstruction surgery is typically recommended if:

  • The patient is an athlete who plans on continuing in their sport
  • More than one ligament in the knee has been injured
  • The injury is limiting mobility and not responding to nonsurgical treatment

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
