Cruciate ligament, ACL reconstruction : Private surgery in the UK

One of the most common knee problems that can occur, especially in sports men and women, is a tear of a cruciate ligament, most commonly the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the four knee ligaments that are crucial to the stability of the knee joint. The other major knee ligaments of the knee are the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), the medial collateral (MCL) and lateral collateral ligaments (LCL).


In cruciate ligament reconstruction, the surgeon removes the torn ends of the ligament and replaces these with a graft taken from another tendon such as the hamstring or patellar tendon.
