Multiple ACL Surgery Techniques Effective in Helping Athletes Return to Play Orthopaedic surgeons have debated the effectiveness of the single versus double-bundle method of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair for years. However new data shows both techniques lead to similarly effective outcomes for patients.

ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT (ACL) one of 4 major ligaments (ligaments connect bone to bone) of the knee joint that coordinate function and promote stability. It runs in a notch at the end of the FEMUR (intercondylar notch) and originates at the back part of the femur (postero-medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle) and attaches to the front part of the TIBIA (tibial eminence). In an adult, the ACL prevents forward movement of the TIBIA. It also provides appx. 90% of knee joint…

Ligament Injuries to the Knee What are knee ligaments? There are 4 major ligaments in the knee. Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue that connect bones to each other and provide stability and strength to the joint. The four main ligaments in the knee connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone), and include the following: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The ligament, located in the center of the knee, that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone)…
