Knee Ligament Reconstruction

USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Knee Ligament Reconstruction

A damaged knee ligament can be repaired or reconstructed through arthroscopic surgery. For this minimally invasive procedure, doctors make small incisions around the knee and insert a tiny camera to guide them through surgery. In an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the tendon is replaced by a healthy tendon (i.e. parts of the patella tendon or hamstrings) from another part of the leg or a donor graft will be used to stabilize the joint. Keck Medicine of USC orthopaedic surgeons are pioneers for many joint preservation and replacement procedures and have performed thousands of surgeries.
