Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the four main ligaments present at the center of the knee joint that connect lower leg bone to the thigh bone. Any tear or injury in this ligament can completely restrict the movement of knee joint. A surgical procedure to repair the injury or reconstruct anterior cruciate ligament is commonly known as ACL Surgery. During ACL Reconstruction, the ligament is replaced with a graft taken from the patient's own body. Most common grafts are tendon of the knee cap or one of the hamstring tendons. ACL Repair surgery is performed where ACL and a piece of bone is seperated from rest of the knee joint.
