ACL Reconstructions

Anterior Cruciate Ligament also known as ACL repair is an innovative treatment of knee ligament injuries. The anterior cruciate ligament is one of four ligaments in your knee that is essential in keeping your knee stable. If you've torn or ruptured your ACL, it can be reconstructed by replacing the ligament with a graft. This will stop the knee from giving way when making twisting or turning movements.The procedure enables patients to return to physical activity, much quicker than a standard ACL reconstruction (Three months after the surgery). ACL repair is a new approach to treatment.
Our expert surgeons can reattach the torn ends of the ligaments together with the latest knee ligament repair technology. Our dedicated physiotherapy team will help you get back on your feet using KABERA’s personalized patient pathway. Our specialist physiotherapy department can help with recovery form surgery using techniques such as acupuncture, electrotherapy, massage and rehabilitation in our hydrotherapy pool.

ACL Reconstructions Treatment at KABERA

If you decide to have ACL reconstruction surgery at KABERA, here’s how the surgeon will perform the treatment

    The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic
  • The knee is examined arthroscopically to assess concomitant injuries
  • A ligament graft is obtained by harvesting a section of either the hamstring tendons of the same knee (the gracilis and semitendinosus tendons) or else a portion of the patellar tendon (with small bone blocks at either end).
  • Tunnels are drilled through the bones of the tibia and the femur into the knee joint.
  • The tendon graft is threaded through into the knee, and the ends are fixed firmly using either screws or other specialised fixation devices which hold the graft in place under tension.
  • Patients are normally able to be discharged the day after their surgery.
