ACL Injury| Anterior Cruciate Ligament| Orthopedic Knee Specialist

The knee is comprised of four major ligaments that make up the knee joint complex as well as stabilize the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) prevents the tibia from sliding forward off of the femur as well as hyperextension of the knee. When this ligament is stretched beyond its normal range, the tibia slips out from underneath the femur resulting in ACL injury. While not all ACL injuries require surgery, the severity of the symptoms may determine surgery is necessary. Dr. Benedict Nwachukwu has extensive experience in treating ACL injuries as well as other knee ligament injuries.
