To learn more about anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, as well as treatment and recovery options from Austin Sports Medicine, please visit our Center for ACL Injuries site
The ACL is a ligament that provides stability to the knee joint. It is commonly injured during high-intensity sports like football and soccer. Surgery is often recommended to restore knee strength and function by reconstructing a damaged ACL with a graft. The graft may be obtained from the tendon that stabilizes the kneecap, or patella, and is called a “bone-patellar tendon-bone” graft, or BPTB graft, as it consists of tendon and bony attachments.
The board-certified surgeons at Austin Sports Medicine can consult with you to find the best ACL injury treatment method for your case. Contact our Central Texas sports medicine clinic to schedule an appointment by calling 512-450-1300 or fill out the form to the right.
