Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

See your ORS: Popping and catching after ACL reconstructive surgery using patellar tendon can be related to the graft taken... that is patellofemoral ‘crepitus’— catching and popping esp. w/ leg extensions, stair-climbing. Best to see your orthopedist and get examined. Sometimes the graft hypertrophies( cyclops lesion)and can cause similar symptoms. Best of luck!
