      Frequently Asked Questions

      There are four main ligaments in our knee joint, and one of them is the anterior cruciate ligament or the ACL. It prevents the tibia from slipping in front of the femur. It also maintains the rotational stability of the knee.

      The ACL is particularly prone to injuries during athletics or because of impact. Hence ACL tears are often seen in sportspersons at all levels. Sports that have a lot of leg planting, cutting and pivoting like soccer, basketball, skiing or football put you at a higher risk. Surgery is needed to treat a torn ACL.

      A partial or total rupture in the ACL is termed an ACL tear. It is one of the strongest tissue bands connecting your tibia and femur. Thus, a tear or sprain to the anterior cruciate ligament is termed an ACL injury. If we consider the risks, it is higher in sports that need sudden spotting or change of directions, jumping and landing. The ACL does not have restoration ability. Hence when torn, it requires surgery.

      The causes are mentioned below-

      Ligaments are strong tissue bands that connect two bones. Two ligaments intersect in the middle of the knee, and one is the ACL. Sports and exercise activities that stress your knee joint makes you vulnerable to ACL injuries-

      • A cutting (sudden slowing or change of direction)
      • Pivoting with a firmly planted foot
      • Awkward landing after a jump
      • Sudden halt
      • A direct impact on the knee or collision

      A partial or total tear can happen in an ACL injury. However, if it is a mild impact, it may stretch the ligament but not tear it.

      Risk Factors

      • Females: There is a difference in male and female anatomy, muscle strength and hormonal influences.
      • Participation in specific sports like soccer, football, skiing, basketball or gymnastics
      • Lack of conditioning
      • Incorrect movements like moving knee inward during a squat
      • Wearing shoes that do not fit
      • Poorly maintained equipment like unadjusted ski bindings
      • Playing on artificial turf

      You can keep in mind and avoid these to avoid getting an ACL tear. However, sport is an unpredictable realm, and you can get injured despite all precautions. But when you have the best doctor for ACL surgery in Mumbai, like Dr. Aditya Sai, you have no reason to worry. At the Shoulder and Knee Clinic, we assure you of quality and the best treatment from Dr. Sai.

      The moment people get hurt in the knee, they might hear a popping sound. However, it does not happen at all. Common symptoms include-

      • Reduced range of motion
        After an injury to the ACL, likely, you won’t be able to bend or flex your knee like usual.
      • Issues walking
        In cases where you can put weight on the injured leg, you might notice trouble in walking. People might feel their knee joints are looser than usual.
      • Pain
        Pain might not be there when you have a minor injury. However, you can feel soreness along the knee joint line. You might also experience challenges while putting pressure or standing on the hurt leg.
      • Swelling
        Swelling is seen within 24 hours of the injury. You can apply ice or elevate the leg using a pillow to avoid swelling.

      Your symptoms will also help the doctor understand the extent of the injury. When you want the best outcomes, you need to get the best ACL surgeons in Mumbai. You can look for them online and then shortlist them based on your needs. Alternatively, you can book a consultation appointment with Dr. Sai, who has years worth of expertise in the field.

      While looking for an orthopaedic surgeon, consider the following-

      • Their board certifications (preferably in orthopaedics with specialisation in ACL surgery)
      • Has previously treated patients with your condition
      • Is practising in a hospital with high-quality results in ACL or orthopaedic surgeries
      • Accepts your insurance plan
      • You should feel free while talking, and they should answer your doubts neatly

      Following five steps also prove to help get the best doctor for ACL surgery-

      • Ask for Referrals
        Make a list of orthopaedic surgeons that you know. Ask recommendations from family, friends and other healthcare professionals. However, if you do not have significant recommendations or need a consult, consider meeting Dr. Sai.
      • Check Credentials and Experience
        Take out time to read the doctor’s credentials. Look for board certification in orthopaedics with ACL surgery specialisation. Preferably someone who does it regularly. Check if they work as a team physician or doctor for any sports team. If so, you can understand the expertise and confidence of the surgeon. The more experienced, the better the results. Also, ensure to find a doctor recognised at state and federal institutions without malpractice history or disciplinary actions.
      • Hospital Performance Matters
        Often a team of highly skilled professionals with experience is required for orthopaedic procedures. For the same reason, you should consider the quality of your orthopaedic centre or hospital. First, find out where the doctor performs surgeries and then do some research. The ideal hospital would be the one near you with a better than expected rating for orthopaedics. Then you can look for doctors who do surgeries there. Avoid lower-rated hospitals.
      • Talk with the Surgeon
        As you begin shortlisting your list of orthopaedic surgeons, call their offices to check for an appointment to meet them. Ensure whether you feel comfortable while talking to them. Also, analyse how they respect your feelings and answer your doubts. Following are some other questions you may ask-
        • Do you treat ACL tear patients regularly?
        • How many surgeries have you previously done?
        • What are the outcomes? Could you share some data?
        • What are the complications you see?
        • How do you avoid the complications or deal with them?
      • Determine Benefit of Insurance
        You need to be practical about insurance matters. If you want to get the most benefits of your insurance and pay as little as possible from your own savings, you need to select the surgeon accordingly. However, just because a doctor participates in your insurance plan doesn’t mean that they are highly qualified. Therefore, you still need to check their credentials and expertise.
