ACL Surgery

ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) surgery is a procedure that repairs or reconstructs a torn ACL in the knee. The ACL is a ligament that helps to stabilize the knee joint, and if it is torn, it can lead to pain, instability, and difficulty with movement.

Our experienced orthopedic specialists use cutting-edge technology and techniques to perform ACL reconstruction surgery, which involves replacing the damaged ligament with a tissue graft. This surgery is usually performed utilizing minimally invasive arthroscopic methods, resulting in smaller incisions and a quicker recovery time.
