ACL Tear Treatment in Delhi

Diagnosis of a Torn ACL

The orthopedic doctor will begin the diagnosis with a physical examination to check the swelling in the knee. The ACL tear doctor will also recommend diagnostic tests like X-rays, MRI scans and arthroscopy for a detailed and thorough diagnosis and to rule out any fractures. Additionally, your ACL tear doctor may also perform the Lachman’s test and a pivot to check if the ACL is still intact or to assess ACL tears.

ACL Reconstruction Surgery

The surgery to repair a torn ACL is known as ACL reconstruction. Pristyn Care’s ACL tear surgeons in Delhi perform the surgery with the minimally invasive arthroscopic approach. During the arthroscopic ACL tear surgery in Delhi, the surgeon will make small incisions around the knee, usually 2 or 3 instead of one large incision used in the open surgery.

Most ACL tear surgeons in Delhi use arthroscopic approach to perform ACL tear surgery rather than open surgery because-

  • It is easy to view and access the knee structures.
  • Uses smaller incisions instead of one long incision.
  • It can be performed at the same time as the diagnostic arthroscopy.
  • It involves fewer risks and promotes faster recovery.
