If you have torn the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), then you will need an ACL reconstruction procedure—which is performed by our orthopedic specialists in Houston. ACL injuries usually occur as a result of participation in sports or recreational activities.
During an ACL reconstruction, our surgeon will remove the damaged ligament and replace it by grafting a piece of tendon onto your knee. The material may come from a cadaver or from a tendon in your own knee. Our team will secure the material to your bones with fasteners or screws.
