The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) not only prevents the rotation of thigh bone (femur) on the tibia in the knee, but it also prevents its forward translation onto the Femur. The ligament can tear off during sports like football, rugby and tennis, or other activities like dancing and any strenuous exercise.

The torn ligament cannot be stitched but reconstructed surgically by grafting a new tissue on it. This is known as ACL reconstruction surgery.

As the Mexicali bones and joints surgeon explains here, the reconstruction of the torn ligament can be done with hamstrings or patellar tendon.

Following is the video narration.

“ACL, it’s a ligament inside your knee; is an anterior crucial ligament that is subject to rupture in sports activities like soccer, football and hockey, and dancing and basketball and all that. Nowadays when a young patient or an older patient is very active… have to reconstruct it. You cannot sew it back together. You have to reconstruct it.

We have a lot many patients where you can take it from the body but the two main are from the patellar tendon and from the hamstring, then we have the semi tendinosus. Now we are using aprons also. There is a special way to do it…..doing arthroscopic surgery, you put it into the joint and you fix it until it gets well, so that you have stable knee.”The cost of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) repair in Mexico is comparatively lower than its western counterparts like the U.S. and the U.K. Other than Mexico, countries like India and Costa Rica offer are equally affordable and have highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons who routinely perform these surgeries.
