    ACL Tear Treatment

    The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is an important ligament in the knees which plays an important role in keeping the joint of the knees stable and preventing excessive movement. When the ACL is torn, it causes severe pain and a lack of stability while walking and doing other activities. In such cases, ACL surgery is required to treat or reconstruct the affected ligament and is the only way out of extreme pain and discomfort.

    ACL surgery is an optimum choice for those who have completely torn ACLs and are highly engaged in sports or other activities.

    It is also a suitable option for those with a partial tear but suffering from severe pain and instability. The primary motive for getting ACL surgery is to repair the damaged ligament to restore the normal functioning of the knees.

    The surgery is usually performed with the help of arthroscopy. It involves minimum invasion techniques hence small incisions and a camera to get a complete view of the situation inside the knee. The surgery takes about two hours to complete, and the patients can go home on the same day. After the surgery, patients are given braces and crutches to use for several weeks to reduce the pressure on the knee, allowing it to heal completely. Physical therapy is needed to regain strength and mobility in the operated knee.

    Thus, ACL surgery is a good option for the treatment of those patients who are suffering from a damaged ACL ligament or have a completely broken ACL ligament. The surgery would help them restore their high-intensity activities such as sports, etc. It helps reduce the pain and discomfort from the broken ligament while ensuring returning to all activities. Also, ensure that you are going for the surgical procedure only after all non-surgical procedures and treatments have been tried and did not deliver successful results. To get a complete idea of whether you should undergo the procedure, it is best to consult an orthopaedic surgeon who would assess your situation and suggest it accordingly. Dr. Aditya Sai is one of the best ACL surgeon in Mumbai. Book an appointment now.

    Dr. Aditya Sai is a gemstone. My father-in-law had a tendon injury while climbing stairs in my hometown, Odisha, and the doctor there made us nervous like anything; he asked us to rush to Bhubaneswar or Visakhapatnam immediately and get the surgery done within 7 days. Thank God, I live in Mumbai and learned about Dr. Aditya Sai through a mutual friend, and I took an appointment. Next morning, my father-in-law flew from Odisha to Mumbai, and we met Dr. Aditya Sai. Believe me, he made us so comfortable, and first he made us understand the exact situation, the need for an MRI, and in what scenarios surgery is required, etc. After all the diagnoses, he prescribed special footwear for my father-in-law for 6 weeks. Today, as I write this post, without surgery, my father-in-law is absolutely perfect and is about to go to the physiotherapists for recovery. Thank you, Dr. Aditya Sai. 🙏

    Best ACL Surgery in Mumbai

    ACL is an important ligament in the knee joint for movement and knee stability, and its wear and tear can seriously affect a patient’s mobility and overall quality of life. ACL tears are common among athletes and individuals engaged in sports. An ACL injury can lead to chronic pain and other knee damage, such as meniscal tears or osteoarthritis, if not treated properly.

    However, patients in Mumbai can find reassurance in knowing that the Shoulder and Knee Clinic offers the best ACL surgery treatment in the region. Led by Dr. Aditya Sai, a highly experienced orthopedic specialist with over 15 years of expertise, the clinic utilizes advanced surgical techniques to ensure optimal outcomes.

    With the expertise of Dr. Sai and our patient-centric care, individuals facing ACL injuries can trust the Shoulder and Knee Clinic for the best treatment for ACL injury in Mumbai.

    The ACL, or anterior cruciate ligament, is like a stabilizing band inside your knee that helps the knee stay stable by preventing it from bending or rotating too much when you move, especially during sports or other activities.

    Its role is crucial in facilitating smooth knee movement and preventing injuries during activities involving sudden stops, changes in direction, or jumps. Without the ACL, the knee could become vulnerable to injuries and instability.

    What happens when you have an ACL tear?

    ACL tear occurs when your knee moves or twists more than its natural capacity. Some of the symptoms that can be noticed with an ACL tear are: 

    • Feeling or noticing a pop feeling in your knee
    • Swelling within a few hours after the injury
    • Pain (especially when weight is applied to your knee)
    • Weakness (sudden and unexpected loss of strength or stability in the knee joint)
    • Reduced range of motion (the ability to extend and move your knees reduce)

    Does ACL Tear need surgery?

    Suffering from an ACL tear or injury is a serious matter, and timely intervention is important to prevent the risk of complications such as osteoarthritis and chronic pain. At our Shoulder and Knee Clinic, we carefully diagnose each case and determine the most appropriate treatment plan for patients with ACL tears.

    Whether an ACL tear requires surgery depends on several factors, such as: 

    • Severity of the tear: If the ACL tear is minor, non-surgical treatments such as rest or physical therapy might only be required. Surgery is recommended only for complete ACL tears or damage. 
    • Level of physical activity: For sports persons or individuals with recurrent ACL tears, surgery is a better option to regain full knee stability.  
    • Patient age: Compared to older adults, It is generally beneficial for younger, active individuals to undergo surgery for an ACL tear for knee stability. 
    • Surgery as the sole option: When conservative methods such as rest and physiotherapy fail to improve knee stability caused by an ACL tear, choosing surgical intervention is advisable.

    How Does the ACL Get Injured?

    ACL injuries are commonly associated with sports activities and traumatic incidents. The ligament can be strained or injured when there is a sudden stop, changes in direction, direct impacts to the knee, or improper landings from jumps. Athletes participating in sports like soccer, basketball, and football are particularly prone to ACL injuries due to the nature of their movements.

    An ACL tear doesn’t naturally heal and requires timely intervention to restore regular function. Our Shoulder and Knee Clinic in Mumbai provides top-notch ACL tear treatment and ensures effective ACL reconstruction.

    How Does One Diagnose an ACL Tear?

    Accurate diagnosis is important to develop an effective treatment plan. An ACL tear diagnosis typically involves a combination of physical examination and imaging studies. 

    The orthopedic will conduct an initial physical examination to assess any swelling and tenderness in the knee. They also move the knee differently to check the range of motion and overall joint function. 

    Orthopedic specialists at Dr. Aditya’s Shoulder and Knee Clinic use advanced techniques, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), to visualize the extent of the ACL injury and assess potential damage to surrounding structures.

    What are the Treatment Options for an ACL Tear in Mumbai? 

    Treatment options for ACL injuries include both surgical and non-surgical approaches. Typically, non-operative treatment is considered for individuals aged 50 and above with a lower activity level and who do not engage in athletic activities.

    On the other hand, surgical intervention is recommended for active individuals below the age of 50, those who wish to participate in sports actively, and individuals with additional ligament or meniscus injuries. The choice between surgical and non-surgical options depends on factors like age, activity level, and the specific injury.

    What is the Treatment Procedure for ACL Tear in Mumbai?

    ACL Reconstruction:

    ACL reconstruction is a commonly performed surgical procedure to restore stability to the knee. At Shoulder and Knee Clinic, our experienced orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Aditya Sai, offers advanced and personalized treatment procedures for ACL tears, primarily focusing on ACL reconstruction. The procedure for ACL reconstruction involves: 

    Graft Selection: The surgeon carefully selects the graft material, often choosing between the patient’s tissue (autograft) or tissue from a cadaver (allograft).


    Arthroscopic Technique: Minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures involve making small incisions and using specialized instruments (arthroscope) to access and repair the ACL.

    Graft Fixation: The chosen graft is securely fixed using screws or other fixation devices, ensuring stability and promoting natural healing.

    Preparation for ACL Reconstruction

    Preparation for ACL reconstruction at our clinic involves a comprehensive approach:


    Diagnostic Evaluation: Thorough assessments, including physical examination and imaging studies, ensure an accurate understanding of the ACL injury.


    Patient Education: our medical team provides clear and detailed information to the patients about the surgical procedure, expected outcomes, and postoperative care. 

    Preoperative Rehabilitation: In some cases, patients may undergo preoperative physical therapy to enhance knee strength and range of motion, optimizing the success of the surgery.

    ACL Reconstruction Rehabilitation 

    Postoperative rehabilitation is a critical phase in the recovery journey after ACL reconstruction at Dr. Aditya’s Shoulder and Knee Clinic. Physical therapy helps regain strength, stability, and range of motion. Return to sports or strenuous activities is gradual and depends on individual progress.

    Our dedicated team of physiotherapists guides patients through a structured rehabilitation program, which includes:

    • Immediate Postoperative Care: Managing pain and swelling and initiating a gentle range of motion exercises.
    • Progressive Exercises: Gradual introduction of weight-bearing exercises and strengthening routines.
    • Functional Training: Tailored exercises to restore agility, balance, and sport-specific skills.
    • Gradual Return to Activity: Individualized plans to ensure a safe and phased return to sports and daily activities.

    Are There Any Risks and Complications With ACL Surgery

    While ACL reconstruction is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, it’s important for patients to be aware of potential risks and complications. Some of them are: 

    • Infection
    • Bleeding
    • Graft failure
    • Nerve or blood vessel damage
    • Knee stiffness

    Our surgeons at Dr. Aditya’s Shoulder and Knee Clinic prioritize patient safety, employing advanced techniques and stringent protocols to minimize these risks.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The ACL is one of the four significant ligaments in your knee joint. The ACL prevents the shinbone or tibia from slipping on the thigh bone or femur and helps maintain your knee’s rotation.

    The ACL in your knee joint will be pretty vulnerable to an injury if you play sports like football, basketball, rugby, athletics, cricket, skiing, hockey, etc. That is due to the risk of your legs experiencing an impactful injury while planting, cutting and pivoting. In addition, women are approximately ten times more vulnerable to the ACL tear than men because of the hormonal influences, muscular strength and anatomical differences.

    When an anterior cruciate ligament or ACL gets entirely or partially ruptured while performing an activity, the resultant injury is commonly called an ACL tear. Once your ACL is torn, it won’t be able to heal by itself.

    If you or someone around you has recently suffered from an ACL injury, you might want to consider Dr Aditya Sai. While the ACL reconstruction surgery cost in Mumbai is soaring up day after day, you can expect the cost to be reasonable under Dr. Sai. Not only does he have immense experience in sports injuries, but he is recognised to be the best surgeon for ACL reconstruction.

    Ligaments in your joints are strong tissue bands connected to each other and connect two bones to complete the joint. The ACL is one of those ligaments that cross between the femur and tibia bones in your knee. It helps in the stabilisation of your knee joint.

    ACL injuries most often occur while playing football, hockey, cricket, rugby, basketball, skiing, athletics, etc. These sports tend to cause a lot of stress to your knees due to:

    • Quickly pivoting from one direction to the other
    • Sudden stops
    • Suddenly slowing down or changing the direction (also called cutting)
    • Getting involved in a collision or direct blow to your knee during tackles in rugby or football.
    • Awkward landing after a high or long jump

    A partial or complete tear in the ACL due to these sudden movements can result in injury. But if the injury is mild, it may not result in a complete tear but just a stretch.

    Other than these causes, certain risk factors may be making you more vulnerable to ACL tear:

    • If you are an athlete playing in sports like football, hockey, cricket, rugby, basketball, skiing, athletics, etc.
    • Have not had training in your sporting discipline, due to which you have incorrect movement patterns like having your knees in the inward position while performing squats.
    • If you are using poor quality or poorly maintained sporting equipment.
    • Gender: Women are approximately ten times more vulnerable to the ACL tear than men because of the hormonal influences, muscular strength and anatomical differences.
    • Poor conditioning

    Although some of these risk factors, like gender, are unavoidable. But when you can check your sporting equipment and have proper training and conditioning while playing a sport. You might also want to be careful if the turf you are playing on is artificial.

    ACL surgery usually takes one to two hours, depending on the specific procedure and any additional repairs needed.

    Most individuals can return to sports or physical activities within six to twelve months after ACL surgery, depending on the injury's extent and rehabilitation's success.

    Yes, physical therapy is essential to the recovery process after ACL surgery to help restore strength, flexibility, and function in the knee joint.

    Here are a few symptoms of ACL tear:

    • Swelling: During the first 24 hours, you may experience swelling around the ACL or knee. It can be reduced with the help of ice or elevating your leg.
    • Limited range of motion: In case of an ACL tear, the range of motion of your knee will be reduced.
    • Pain: The immediate reaction of an ACL tear or any other musculoskeletal injury is pain.
    • Walking issues: Walking or performing any other physical activity will be more challenging than usual.

    These are just a few symptoms that you might experience in case of a torn ACL. If the pain is too unbearable and movement ability is affected, you might want to look for ACL surgery in Mumbai.

    Here are a few treatment options in case of an ACL tear:

    • Primary treatment: In case of a minor ACL tear, you may try the RICE method, which has four parts.
    • Rest: In case of any musculoskeletal injury, you might want to take as much rest as possible.
    • Ice: You may try applying ice for about 20 minutes every hour. It can reduce swelling and alleviate the pain.
    • Compression: You can try wrapping a crepe bandage or compression band.
    • Elevation: Prop up your leg with the help of a pillow.
    • Rehabilitation: The treatment for ACL tears usually starts with rehabilitation performed by a physiotherapist. They teach you the exercises to be performed at home or under the physio’s supervision. You might also be recommended to wear a brace for walking and performing other daily activities. Rehabilitation’s goal is to restore your knee’s range of motion and reduce swelling and pain.
    • Surgery: As mentioned before, once your ACL is torn, it won’t be able to heal by itself. That’s why you will require a surgical procedure, which is usually the only option in most cases. During the surgery, the doctor will remove the damaged ligament and replace it with another piece of tendon or replacement tissue, also called a graft. The graft may come from another part of your body or a cadaver. The surgeon might recommend rehabilitation after the procedure to make recovery faster and easier.
