Because an acl (anterior cruciate ligament) cannot heal itself on its own, an acl is "reconstructed" by placing a graft tendon substitute (from your own or donor cadaver tendon) placed into tunnels made in the original acl position, and fixed in place with screws, buttons, or other fixation device. The body then replaces the cells and structure of the graft over 6-8 months, ...Read more

If you get a single bundle ACL surgery on one knee and a double bundle ACL surgery on the other could this cause any harm to the body?
No harm: You would be an interesting case control study to compare differences, but there is a chance that both would function equally well. Both techniques can result in success, and therefore, you might not expect any difference or harm. Since you know which knee had which tech., comparison may be biased. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: A torn atfl (ankle ligament) rarely requires surgery. And believe it or not, a torn acl does not necessarily have to be repaired unless you are very involved in sports, especially sports involving pivoting/cutting such as tennis. It would be possible to have both surgeries done at the same time, but discuss that with your surgeon. ...Read more

When does an orthopedic surgeon come to a conclusion that a partial knee replacement is the only option?
Up to you !: Replacements are done for severe pain associated with knee arthritis. Arthritis is like losing the tread on your car tire. Many treatments short of replacement include medications, therapy, injections and arthroscopy. When these don't work, the next, and only option, is replacement. Partial replacement is only for specific arthritic conditions, and not the most common option. Ask your surgeon! ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
How does ankle syndesmosis surgery work? Do they repair the ligaments that are damaged at the same time?
Some do not me: If cn early i only reduced the syndesmosis & transfixed with a screw, post op boot, no wt bearing 6-8 weeks. Then screw removal and rehab. I would always fix in some plantar flexion which gives a tight fit, but dorsiflexion is regained thu rehab. Some longer than others. Others will open & sort of repaire the shreded ligament but i never did. B sure screw is a lag & sticks out the tibial side. ...Read more
Avulsion fracture: Tibial spine fractures are characterized by fractures at the insertion site of the anterior cruciate ligament (acl) on the tibia and were first classified into 3 types. For displaced (type ii/iii) fractures, surgical treatment has included fixation with screws, sutures, or wires performed through either open or arthroscopic approaches. Optimal treatment methods remain controversial. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of a meniscus tear? What does it mean when a MRI says a displacement at the meniscus root? Does that cause a knee to lock?
Giving way: Meniscal tears usually cause mechanical instability. The primary symptom is buckling or giving out. A displaced meniscus can cause the knee to lock. The meniscal root is where it attaches either in the front or back of the knee. Depending on your age it can be repaired or removed but is almost always a surgical treatment. See a good orthopedic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
