Thanks for asking me to respond.

Two types of grafts are commonly employed for ACL reconstruction. One is bone patellar bone graft and the other hamstring grafts. Normally donor grafts are taken from the same. This we do even for professionals and they do well. But to answer your question cadaveric grafts are still not available for ACL reconstruction. The cost for ACL reconstruction in our hospital is approximately 175000. You need to be admitted in the hospital for max 3 days. However you need to do extensive exercises for about 3 months with the help of physiotherapist.

Good luck!
