ACL Tear

How is an ACL fixed?

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears can rarely be “repaired” but most require a reconstruction using a graft. A graft is a piece of collagen tissue that is used to replace the damaged ACL. Grafts can be taken from a cadaver (allograft) or from your own knee (autograft). The different types of autografts include patellar tendon, hamstring, and quadriceps tendon.
