Skillfully Performing ACL Surgery for Patients in Reno, NV

ACL Surgery Reno NVDr. Rueben Nair and the other experienced physicians at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic are pleased to offer ACL surgery for residents of Reno, Nevada, and surrounding areas. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is located in your knee joint, where it crosses over your posterior cruciate ligament in an “x” shape. The ACL is responsible for providing rotational stability and helping your knee move back and forth, and it can tear when your leg stops suddenly, changes direction quickly, gets hit from the side, or straightens and pivots at the same time. Symptoms generally include pain and swelling that make it difficult to walk.

Do You Need ACL Surgery?

The answer to this question generally will depend on the extent of your injury and your lifestyle. You may want to opt for ACL surgery if your ligament is completely torn, you’re experiencing significant instability, your job requires knee strength and stability, or you’re active in sports. If your injury is relatively minor and you’re able to stop performing activities requiring knee strength and stability, however, then you may be able to treat the tear using conservative methods such as physical therapy and rest. The orthopedic specialists at our clinic will help you determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.

What Does ACL Surgery Involve?

ACL surgery typically involves reconstructing the ligament by replacing it with a grafted tendon, commonly taken from your kneecap, hamstring, or quadriceps. In some cases — such as where a piece of bone, along with the ligament, separates from the rest of the bone — surgery may involve repairing the ACL, instead of replacing it. This is accomplished by reattaching the bone pieces together.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!
