Complete ACL tear
Hi, my wife had a knee injury. On consultation she was adviced for MRI. As per the reports it is a complete ACL tear which requires surgery for reconstruction. There are two ways suggested :- 1) Using an artificial/fibre ligament(new method), 2) other in which patellar tendons are used for reconstruction(traditional method). Can you please suggest which type of surgery is best suited?
