ACL Injury Treatment

Finding the right approach to your ACL injury.

There are several ways to treat an ACL injury, and we’re dedicated to working with you to determine the best approach for your lifestyle. A torn ACL is a complex injury that requires prompt treatment. While surgery is the only way to completely repair a torn ligament, you may find that you are able to strengthen your knee through surgical rehabilitation and return to a non-strenuous lifestyle without undergoing an operation.

At Florida Medical Clinic, we work one-on-one with you to help determine the best approach to ACL injury treatment. We offer a full range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Bracing
  • Surgical reconstruction (tissue grafting)
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation

In regards to ACL surgery, we perform ACL reconstruction (grafting) surgery, as well as repair surgery for avulsion fractures. Our orthopaedic surgeons are highly experienced with both traditional and minimally invasive techniques, tailoring your treatment plan to your unique needs. If you are a good candidate for surgery, minimally invasive (arthroscopic) surgery may allow for shorter recovery times, a lower risk of complications, and a quicker return to normal activity.

While prompt treatment is ideal, surgery is not usually scheduled immediately after ACL injury. Instead, your operation may be planned several weeks after the initial injury. This allows swelling to go down and range of motion to return prior to surgical treatment. During this period, Florida Medical Clinic’s orthopaedic specialists can order advanced imaging tests and perform several physical assessments to ensure your treatment plan is tailored to your diagnosis.
