This Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is performed using arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. There is a small (4 to 5 cm) incision below the knee where the tendons for the graft are harvested from. The basic technique of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is to identify the correct insertion points on the femur and tibia for the ACL. At these insertion points tunnels of an appropriate size to match the graft are drilled through the bone. The graft is then pulled up through the bone and is secured using screws.
