Surgeons at Duke Orthopaedics offer precise and skilled knee ligament reconstruction surgery to relieve pain and restore stability to torn or injured anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL).
Our orthopaedic providers are skilled at recognizing those patients who would most benefit from ACL reconstruction surgery. We use a physical exam and patient history to determine the cause and severity of the injury and often confirm our results using x-rays or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Once an ACL injury has been confirmed, our doctors discuss with the patient whether surgery is the best course of action.
Often, physical therapy is recommended before the surgery in order to strengthen and stabilize the knee.
Duke orthopaedic surgeons are experts at performing ACL reconstruction surgery. They have the experience and technology necessary to achieve positive outcomes consistently.
Our surgeons usually perform ACL reconstruction arthroscopically, requiring small incisions and promoting faster recovery time.
