I have a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury on my left knee which happened last year, can I get a surgery now to repair my leg?

Yes. Yes, you can still have an acl reconstruction. Acl tears do not heal on their own & having it replaced can help you maintain a healthy/ active lifestyle in the years to come.

Does a displacement of the meniscus root mean that it is torn? Can the anterior cruciate ligament tear from twisting your knee while standing?

Usually and yes. The meniscal root is where the meniscus attaches at the center of the knee so displacement usually means a tear. The acl is subject to tearing while standing and twisting the knee. That mechanism results in the "terrible triad" of meniscus tear, mcl tear and acl tear. Have it evaluated by an orthopedist. Read more...

Is the anterior cruciate ligament tear surgery is painful?

Yes (to an extent) Any surgery will cause post-operative pain. There will also be discomfort with the therapy that is required after the procedure.

Is there any cure to anterior cruciate ligament tear?

Yes. Acl tears that are partial typically heal adequately without surgery and rarely tear completely later. Complete tears never heal spontaneously but a rare person can function without reconstruction. Most require surgery to make a new ligament, as the only means to a "cure". Acupuncture, prolotherapy, herbals, organics, prp, therapy, etc never cure acl tears. Read more...
Yes. Complete acl tears require surgery for those patients who have instability and pain, and for those athletes who need stability with lateral movements. Acl reconstruction is performed usually with the central third of the patellar tendon, and is done arthroscopically. Very successful operation. Read more...
Scope. Complete acl tears will not heal on their own. Arthroscopic acl reconstruction ('scope') uses a graft in place of the torn ligament and typically can help active individuals with knee instability return to their prior level of functioning. Read more...
