ACL surgery: Most acl surgery is done on an outpatient basis meaning that you will likely not spend the night in the surgical facility. If you have other medical conditions that need monitoring after surgery, your surgeon may decide to keep you overnight. Prolonged admission following acl surgery is not common.
