Anterior cruciate ligament surgery involves repairing or reconstructing the ligament (ACL). The ACL, which joins the femur and tibia, is a crucial soft tissue component of the knee. ACL tears, whether partial or full, are a frequent occurrence among athletes. Complete ACL injuries are often treated with an ACL reconstruction operation by sports medicine doctors and orthopaedic surgeons, in which the torn ligament is replaced with a tissue graft to replicate the original ACL. However, Dr. Nikhil Verma (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon) treats ACL injuries using an interdisciplinary approach, in which radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine doctors, and physiatrists work together to choose the most appropriate course of action for every patient. Dr. Nikhil Verma (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon) doctors and scientists also continuously research ACL surgery methods to enhance patients’ short- and long-term outcomes because those who have had an ACL injury are more likely to experience osteoarthritis in the knee sooner in life than those who have not.
