Knee Ligament Surgery

You will likely be referred for knee ligament surgery if you have torn the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in your knee. This is the band of tissue that joins the thigh bone to the shin bone on the knee joint. You will most likely see swelling, restricted movement and pain in your knee.

ACL injuries commonly occur during active sports such as football, rugby and skiing. They are very common and make up around 40% of all sports injuries. A torn ACL creates an unstable knee and loss of a range of movement. To return back to an active lifestyle it may be essential to have knee ligament surgery.


What happens during knee ligament surgery?

Knee ligament surgery is normally performed through keyhole surgery under a general anaesthetic. During the operation, a graft is taken from another part of your leg such as the hamstring or patellar. The graft is fitted to replace the affected ligaments. The surgery can take 1-2 hours and most people will go home the next day.
