Effective ACL repair to help you feel confident and free again
The ACL is the anterior cruciate ligament. It is one of the ligaments critical to stabilizing the knee joint, specifically connecting the femur and thighbone to the tibia and shinbone. ACL tears are generally due to athletic movement, where you are forced to undergo quick changes in direction. Pivoting with a planted foot or taking a direct blow to the knee are other ways to cause an ACL tear. Although some people can still walk with a torn ACL, it is very challenging to live your life to the fullest, and here at Genesis we want to ensure you have access to the highest quality of life. We want to be a part of your journey to freely moving once again.
Ligaments are extremely strong and durable bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone or tendon. Ligaments are critical to athletic movement and having stability throughout your daily movement. With two ligament tears, it can become nearly impossible to complete daily activities like walking around your home, getting out of bed, going to the bathroom, or any other kind of normal movement you should expect from your body. One ligament tear puts you at increased risk of being in such a vulnerable situation. We, at Genesis, want to bring you back to being yourself. With a knee injury, especially, a ligament injury can create significant challenges to the kind of movement you would normally expect from yourself. At Genesis, we understand the challenges this poses and are fully committed to helping you live your life to the fullest.
At Genesis, we are committed to taking advantages of the marvels of modern medicine to create the best treatment plan for your pain. One of the more modern solutions for repairing damage to the ACL is an ACL repair. An ACL repair is different from an ACL reconstruction surgery. While a reconstruction surgery uses a graft from another tendon to spur new ligament growth, ACL repair relies upon the surgeon reattaching the torn ligament to the knee, allowing the body to heal itself back together. With the minimally invasive ACL repair, small incisions are made into the knee, so a scope can be inserted to view the injury. With images from inside of the knee, the surgeon can then stitch the torn ligament back to the bone. This surgery requires sufficient blood for the ligament to fully heal, and it trusts the body to heal itself when repaired. This often leads to a shorter recovery time compared to an ACL reconstruction surgery. Recently, the Bridge Enhanced ACL Repair (BEAR) Implant has made ACL repair even more effective and long-lasting. The BEAR Implant is added between torn ends of the ACL, to help facilitate and stabilize the body’s natural repair. With our advanced imaging techniques and precision ACL repair experience, we are able to produce some of the most effective repairs. We can help relieve the constant knee pain that doesn’t seem like it will ever go away. Our high quality and ethically priced care is what separates Genesis as the best choice for anyone seeking ACL repair.
Who is a good candidate for ACL repair? The best candidate is an athlete who wants to continue playing their sport, especially sports that involve pivoting, cutting, or stopping. This kind of surgery is also critical for anyone that has more than one torn ligament, a torn meniscus, or has significant knee instability that causes your knee to buckle during common daily activities.
