ACL - Anterior Cruciate Ligament is present at the center of your knee that holds the shin bone at its place. A tear in this ligament completely restricts physical activities related to your knee and may lead to ACL surgery.
Treating this ligament is to replace it with some other one. This new ligament may come from your own body; precisely your knee tendon or hamstring tendon. It is known as autograft in this case. When it comes from a donor's body, it is termed as allograft.We have ACL Surgery price information in 10 cities.

The most popular procedure used in this treatment is knee arthroscopy. In this process, a small incision is made on your knee; through which a camera is inserted. This camera is connected to a monitor that displays the affected ligament along with other neighboring tissues.
A shaver like instrument is used to remove the torn ligament. When an autograft is being used, a cut is made large enough to pass it through channels made in your bones so that it reaches desired location. Finally you have a new ACL at the center of your knee.
To hold this new ligament, surgeons connect it to nearby bones, by means of screws. The channels that were made in bones will gradually fill with time. This will further tighten the new ligament in its position. The ACL surgery is concluded with stitches wherever necessary.
Cost of ACL surgery in India ranges between INR 50,000 to INR 1,25,000
