ACL tear diagnosis and surgery

ACL Tear Diagnosis

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.

Surgery

The surgery to repair a torn ACL is known as ACL reconstruction. Pristyn Care’s ACL tear surgeons in Gurgaon perform the surgery with the minimally invasive arthroscopic approach. During the arthroscopic ACL tear surgery , 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 Gurgaon 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.

"ACL tear is one of the common orthopedic conditions among teenagers and sports player. And yet a common fear I encounter is, 'If I will be able to play sports again?'. Well yes, you absolutely will. All my patients have. The only four pointers are- 1.) Early diagnosis, 2.)Timely treatment, 3.) A little rest, 4.)Basic physiotherapy. Once all four are met, you will be absolutely fine and fit to return to sports again. "
