Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is the most common knee surgery in the world. This is because unlike the other health conditions, ACL injury can happen to anyone irrespective of their age. The condition is induced due to activities or unforeseen events like accidents, that strain the joint ligament and damage it. This does not affect your everyday movement like walking. However, delaying ACL Surgery leads to a joint replacement in the near future. It is advisable to take action at the earliest to continue your active lifestyle.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is present in the middle of the knee. It prevents the shin bone from sliding out in front of the thigh bone. When this ligament tears due to vigorous activities or an accident, the patient should go for an ACL surgery.
Some of the noticeable symptoms of ACL injury are:
A damaged ACL cannot heal itself. In the long term, it can lead to further tissue damage and premature knee arthritis. Additionally it can also cause inactivity, obesity, loss of morale and confidence. To avoid these complications, you can undergo the ACL surgery.
The surgery takes about an hour. It is a risk-free cosmetic surgery with minimal insertions to get you back at an active & carefree lifestyle with confidence!
Unlike the traditional method, we at Zoi Hospitals, follow the ‘All-In Technique’. This technique uses one tendon extracted from your thigh to rebuild the ACL ensuring strength and longevity of the knee joint.
The recovery period of the ACL surgery is as short as 1 to 2 days. Within 2 days you can start climbing stairs and in 3 weeks, you can return to your daily chores.
This minimally invasive technique used at Zoi Hospitals ensures that only one tendon is extracted from your thigh that does not hinder your movements. The tendon is then used to replace the damaged ACL ligament to hold the joint in place for your high performance activities.Download Brochure
