Frequently Asked Questions and Contact Info...
ACL stands for anterior cruciate ligament and is located in the knee. An ACL injury is when this ligament becomes damaged or torn due to an accident or injury that involved sudden starts, stops, and impacts to the knee. There are several treatment options for an injured ACL including non-surgical and surgical options.
We recommend reading this [link word “ this” to: http://uscenterforsportsmedicine.com/seven-self-administering-tests-to-know-if-youve-torn-your-acl/] article from the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine, or calling our office to speak to ask a Sports Medicine professional about your potential injury.
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a broad, thick band that runs down the inner part of the knee, from the femur (thighbone) to about four to six inches from the top of the tibia (shinbone).The MCL’s primary function is to prevent the leg from over-extending inward, but it also is part of the mechanism that stabilizes the knee and allows it to rotate.
Making the choice to pursue a total knee replacement is a big decision made by you, your family, and your physician. The physician may decide a total knee replacement is the right course of treatment for you after other non-surgical treatment options have failed and believes your pain, disability, and quality of life qualify you.
