The anterior cruciate ligament is of very special significance because it forms the central support structure for the tibia or shin bone, central to bi-pedal movement. When the ACL becomes damaged or cut, the tibia loses its stability and may increase the risk of even more serious injury owing to the lack of support.
ACL reconstruction is a service we offer to repair the damaged ligament in the knee and restore stability. The surgery typically involves knee arthroscopy where tissue grafts are harvested from another part of the body to replace the damaged ACL.
After replacement and recuperation, the knee regains its stability and integrity and most patients are able to resume an active life in a few months’ time. To speak with an expert in ACL reconstruction, call (352) 404-8956 today.
