ACL Tear

There are different types of grafts that can be used for an ACL reconstruction. Two major categories are allograft and autograft. Allografts involve the use of a cadaver while autografts are when the tissues used in the reconstruction come from you own body. Autograft tissue options include patellar tendon, hamstring and quadriceps. At ISMI the type of graft to be used is personalized to each patient depending on their age and activity level.
