ACL repair information and locations in Mexico

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ALC) repair is a surgery used to repair or replace your knee’s ACL after injury. This procedure is commonly used to treat sports related injuries. This is a Same Day Procedure.
This procedure is normally carried out with an Arthroscopy. Doctors insert small tools into the knee to either repair the ACL or replace it with tissue from another part of the patient’s body. Not all ACL tears require surgery; we suggest consulting our top Orthopedists to find out what your body needs and what’s best for you.
