ACL injury is one of the most common conditions affecting the knee — causing pain, instability, reduced strength and limited motion. Athletes most commonly suffer ACL tears due to changing directions while running; however, anyone that forces the knee to move beyond its normal range of motion can be at risk of tearing the ACL.

Treatment for an ACL tear varies depending on each patient’s individual needs. Our physicians offer both surgical, including primary and revision ACL surgery, and nonsurgical treatments. Non-surgical includes bracing and physical therapy. Surgical treatments can include rebuilding the ligament with a tissue graft. Your physician will work with you to determine the treatment methods best for you.

Treatment also can include an allograft, which is tissue taken from another person. Allograft tissue transplants are not potentially rejected by the body as with organ transplants, so it is not necessary to use drugs to suppress the body’s immune response. In most cases, an allograft reduces pain, reduces rehabilitation time, and reduces time in surgery.
