I tore my lcl and my PCL in my knee. How long does it take to heal perfectly?

Orthopedic Surgery

In brief: A year

Without surgery, the PCL can heal to an extent.
The lcl tends not to heal at all. With a reconstruction of both, i give my athletes a year window to return to sports. It is not an easy course and takes patients and work to get to that position.
