Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction And It’s Benefits
ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is a tissue band located in the knee. This ACL connects the thigh bone (femur) and the shin bone (tibia). It helps in stabilizing the knee and controlling the leg rotation. An ACL injury is one of the most common ways for people hurting their knees.
Stretching or tearing of an ACL is very painful, and it even makes difficult to walk and do the daily activities. Symptoms like pain, swelling, trouble in walking, less range of motion.
There’s a lot of difference between traditional ACL surgery and minimally invasive ACL surgery from the size of the incision to the surgical procedure. The equipment used in the arthroscopic ACL surgery is very small, so only minor incisions are made into the skin. This helps in providing the patient with a wide range of benefits.
