Not all knee surgeries are the same
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is a good operation which eliminates symptomatic instability of the knee for most patients.
It has a high success rate and a low complication rate.
Unfortunately, despite a technically successful operation, a few patients continue to complain about some residual laxity (“the knee just doesn’t feel normal”).
Over the past decade there have been major changes in the surgical techniques for ACL reconstruction.
