  • ACL Tear
    ACL Tear

    The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a main stabilizing ligament of the knee. It prevents abnormal translation and rotation of the tibia with respect to the femur. The ACL is commonly torn during athletics in sports involving cutting or pivoting (e.g. basketball, soccer), but also can be torn in any event that causes an undue rotational force to the knee (twisting injury, collision sports, falls, skiing).

    Multi-ligament Knee Injury

    The most common multi-ligament knee injury is an ACL/MCL injury. This injury commonly occurs in sports and fortunately, the MCL portion of this injury usually heals without surgery, so the knee is commonly treated for the ACL injury only with reconstruction. Rehabilitation and surgery for an ACL/MCL injury is commonly no different than that of an isolated ACL injury.

    Meniscus Tear

    The meniscus is a C shaped piece of fibrous cartilage in the knee joint between the weight bearing surfaces of the femur and the tibia (Figure 1). There are two menisci in each knee, one on the inner side of the knee (medial meniscus) and one on the outer side of the knee (lateral meniscus).
