About the offer

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction is a surgical procedure used to repair or reconstruct a torn posterior cruciate ligament, a major ligament in the knee joint. Although posterior cruciate ligament tears are less common than anterior cruciate ligament tears, they can also occur from a direct blow to the front of the knee or sudden hyperextension of the knee joint. During posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, the torn ligament is replaced with a graft that can be harvested from the patient's tissue (autograft) or a donor (allograft). Common graft choices include the hamstring, quadriceps, or Achilles tendon. Posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is often performed arthroscopically using small incisions around the knee joint. An arthroscope (a small camera) and special tools are inserted through these incisions to visualize and repair the posterior cruciate ligament. Full recovery from posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction can take several months, and the time to return to sports or other high-impact activities depends on individual factors such as healing progress, appropriateness of rehabilitation, and the patient's specific sport or activity. Posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction aims to restore the knee's stability, function, and range of motion, allowing patients to return to their desired activity level while minimizing the risk of future knee injury. To optimize outcomes after reconstruction, patients must follow the surgeon's post-operative instructions and rehabilitation program.
