Top ACL Repair in Cabo San Lucas Mexico

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the two 'crossing' ligaments within the knee. It attaches to the back of the thigh bone and the shin bone at the front and prevents excessive forward movement of the shin on the thigh bone. It also controls the knee during twisting or rotational movements.

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) is a surgical tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, to restore its function after anterior cruciate ligament injury. The torn ligament is removed from the knee before the graft is inserted.


ACL injury and other ligament injuries can be caused by:

  • Extending the knee too far
  • Jumping and landing on a flexed knee
  • Twisting your knee with the foot planted
  • Getting hit on the knee
  • Stopping suddenly when running
  • Suddenly shifting weight from one leg to the other


Who can be a candidate for ACL repair surgery?

  • If you have completely torn your ACL or have a partial tear and your knee is very unstable.
  • You have gone through a rehab program and your knee is still unstable.
  • You are very active in sports or have a job that requires knee strength and stability.
  • You are willing to complete a long and rigorous rehab program.
  • You have chronic ACL deficiency, which is when your knee is unstable and affecting your quality of life.
  • You don’t have medical problems that make surgery too risky.
