Learning About Acl Reconstruction
Phillip DePaola, Physician Assistant with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains the ACL is in the middle of the knee, between what is called the two condyles. In the procedure they make tunnels that are going through the tibia and they also make a femoral tunnel.
"We prepare the need to receive the graft or the tissue that we're going to be replacing the ACL with. Then, we do a couple of tests after we've inserted the ACL to make sure we have stability in the knee".
