So, let’s get started. First, let’s know,

 

How does the ACL tear?

The ACL is the tissue that joins the thighbone to the shinbone at the knee. The majority of ACL injuries occur in sports like basketball, football, skiing, and tennis. If the anterior cruciate ligament is injured, the patient may hear a 'pop' sound in the knee area and feel the knee lose grip or give way. 

 

The associated symptoms may include:

  • Swelling and pain – significant swelling in 24 hours, which may reduce but prevent you from returning to regular or athletic activities.
  • Decrease in the full range of motion.
  • Discomfort when walking or running.

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek treatment from one of the best orthopedic surgeon in Telangana as soon as possible.

Now, let’s discuss more, 

Evaluation and Diagnosis of ACL Injury

  • Dr. Rajesh Thunuguntla, our expert orthopedic surgeon, will study the patient's medical condition and record their medical history. Also, he will perform a physical and comparative examination of both knees.
  • The doctor will evaluate the affected knee to determine if an ACL injury has occurred.
  • If necessary, Dr. Rajesh Thunuguntla may recommend imaging tests such as X-rays and MRIs for a more thorough examination.

Treatment Options for ACL Injury:

In addition to examining the injured knee, Dr. Rajesh Thunuguntla will evaluate age, sports activity, and the patient's physical condition. 

An athlete who intends to return to athletic activities soon will require surgery, whereas a patient who leads a sedentary lifestyle may not require immediate surgery.

Nonsurgical ACL Tear Treatment: 

Bracing and physical therapy are two nonsurgical options. According to our arthroscopic surgeon in Telangana, patients with a stable knee, low activity, and advanced age may benefit from this approach.

Braces: 

To protect the knee from instability, the patient will need to wear a brace. To avoid putting weight on the limb with the injured knee, they may have to use crutches.

Physical treatment: 

Once the swelling on the knee has subsided, the doctor may recommend a physical therapy routine to restore knee function and strengthen the muscles that support the knee. If the condition does not improve following nonsurgical treatment, our skilled orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rajesh Thunuguntla, may suggest surgery.

Surgical Intervention: 

It involves reconstruction of the ligament. Usually, surgeons administer general anesthesia for the majority of ACL repairs. Hence, the patient will be unconscious throughout the surgery. The procedure takes about 2 to 3 hours. The patient may not need to stay overnight in the hospital.

 

Arthroscopy is used to accomplish the procedure. Stitching the damaged ligament is not an option. The surgeon will fix a tissue graft in the place of the torn ligament, providing much-needed support for the new ligament to form.

 

Several graft choices are available, including those derived from the patellar tendon, hamstring tendon, quadriceps tendon, or cadaver transplant.

 

Recovery and Rehabilitation 

Recovery from the ACL reconstruction in Telangana takes about six months or more because the ligaments need to rebuild. Rehabilitation is critical in healing an anterior cruciate ligament tear because it guarantees the restoration of the knee's strength and complete range of motion.

 

Following surgery, rehabilitation focuses on regaining movement in the joint and surrounding muscles and strengthening and protecting the new ligament. Finally, the patient's resumption of sports will be ensured by the rehabilitation protocol.
