Open-Knee Surgery

Learn about surgery to repair a knee ligament, including how to prepare for the treatment and what to expect as a result.

Open-knee surgery is a procedure that is performed to repair a torn knee ligament, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). This type of surgery involves making an incision in the knee joint and using surgical instruments to access the damaged ligament.

Before undergoing open-knee surgery, patients will typically undergo a thorough evaluation to determine the extent of the ligament damage and whether surgery is the best treatment option. This may involve a physical examination, imaging tests such as an MRI, and possibly arthroscopy to further evaluate the knee joint.

To prepare for open-knee surgery, patients may be advised to stop taking certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding during surgery. They may also need to refrain from eating or drinking for a certain period of time before the procedure.

During the surgery, the damaged ligament will be repaired using sutures or other materials, and the joint may also be stabilized with a graft. After the surgery, patients will need to undergo a period of rehabilitation to restore strength and mobility to the knee joint.

While open-knee surgery can be an effective treatment for knee ligament injuries, it is also a major surgical procedure that carries some risks, such as infection, bleeding, and blood clots. Patients should discuss the potential risks and benefits of this procedure with their healthcare provider to determine whether it is the right treatment option for them.
