About ACL Reconstruction

The sports medicine doctors at the University Orthopaedic Center have a long history of working with ACL injuries. The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is one of four ligaments that are crucial to knee stability. This strong fibrous tissue is part of a complicated network of tendons and ligaments that help stabilize and support the knee. This region is particularly vulnerable to injury during athletic activity or as the result of impact.
