Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction hamstring method is a surgical procedure that replaces the injured ACL with a hamstring tendon. The ACL is one of the four major ligaments of the knee that connects the femur (thigh bone) to the tibia (shin bone) and helps stabilize your knee joint. The anterior cruciate ligament prevents excessive forward movement of the lower leg bone in relation to the thigh bone, as well as limits rotational movements of the knee. A tear of this ligament can make you feel as though your knees will not allow you to move or even hold you up. ACL reconstruction is surgery to reconstruct the torn ligament of your knee with a tissue graft.
