MCL Reconstruction Surgery: What to Expect

During your MCL reconstruction surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia. The orthopedic surgeon conducting the procedure will make small incisions in the affected knee and insert an arthroscope (a small, tube-shaped surgical instrument). There are several different methods that can be used to reconstruct your torn MCL. The surgeon may use:

  • A portion of the patellar tendon
  • A portion of the hamstring tendon

MCL reconstruction is typically performed as an outpatient surgery and does not usually require an overnight stay. Once your surgery is complete, you will likely be able to return home to begin the recovery process. Recovery times can vary significantly depending on how severe the MCL tear was and which surgical methods were used. The orthopedic specialists at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic will develop a customized recovery plan for your injury to help you heal as quickly and safely as possible.
