ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION
The knee is subjected to immense loads, forces and torque as it stabilizes and propels the body. A tear of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee can occur when those stressors on the knee become overwhelming. An ACL tear is a severe injury that commonly occurs during sports activities.
The ACL provides critical stability to the knee and once it is torn, the knee doesn’t function well and it buckles frequently. You can’t return to sports activities without an ACL and a stable knee. Surgery is needed.
A successful ACL reconstruction requires extreme accuracy and precision in surgery but it also requires a strict and structured post-operative rehabilitation program.
Dr. O’Meara has published multiple articles in scientific journals describing not only the best surgical techniques for ACL reconstruction but also the optimum post-op program for recovery after surgery.
