FAQ’S
Is ACL surgery a major surgery?

ACL surgery is a major surgery which is performed to repair or replace a damaged anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. The ACL knee surgery doctor may only consider the surgery if it suits the needs and lifestyle. The whole procedure is done with the help of an arthroscope. The surgeon places an arthroscope into the joint after the graft has been prepared.

What is the standard repair and recovery time for anterior cruciate ligament tear?

A successful ACL reconstruction performed by the ACL knee surgeon is generally combined with rehabilitation, and can restore stability and function to the knee. During the first few weeks after surgery, the patient should try to regain the same range of motion as the other knee. Recovery typically takes 9 months. Athletes can take 8-12 months or more to return to their sport.

How long does it take to recover from cruciate ligament surgery?

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can take up to a year to recover from knee surgery. After knee surgery, the wound is closed with stitches or surgical staples. If the bands melt, they will disappear after about 3 weeks. If your stitches do not get dissolved, they should be removed by a healthcare practitioner. Your ACL Knee Surgery Doctor will advise you on this.

How is ACL surgery performed?

Typically, the procedure starts with a knee examination while the patient is made comfortable with anaesthesia. This final examination is used to verify that the ACL is torn and also to check other knee ligaments for looseness that may need to be repaired or postoperatively treated during surgery.

The selected tendon is harvested (for an autograft) or thawed (for an allograft) if the physical examination clearly indicates that the ACL is broken. The whole procedure is done with the help of an arthroscope. The ACL Knee Surgeon places an arthroscope into the joint after the graft has been prepared. To insert the arthroscope and instruments, tiny (one-centimeter) incisions called portals are made in the front of the knee and the surgeon examines the condition of the knee. Injuries to the meniscus and cartilage are trimmed or fixed and then the broken ACL stump is removed.

What is the fastest way to recover from ACL surgery?

Recovering from ACL surgery can be long and difficult, but there are ways to make the recovery faster also, while achieving the best results. After surgery, the ACL Knee Surgeon gives written instructions as well as verbal instructions for recovery. The patient must read and understand these instructions and considerations in case of any infection or an adverse reaction to the surgery. Do not skip the rehabilitation appointments. Attend all appointments or reschedule those that are missed.

The below mentioned instructions must be followed for a speedy recovery after the surgery:

  • Go to physical therapy
  • Take the prescribed medications on time
  • Get proper sleep and nutrition
  • Tell the doctor about any issues
  • Don’t overdo any physical activity
