If you have torn your PCL or posterior cruciate ligament, which is present in the knee, either partially or completely, then you must consider undergoing the arthroscopic PCL reconstruction.
The PCL is one of the two major ligaments of the body. The exact position of this ligament is in the knee. Your back and forth movement is controlled by this ligament. From a direct impact on the knee to sports injuries, everything can lead to a tear in the PCL. But like everything else, even a torn PCL has a cure and that is an arthroscopic PCL reconstruction. But you should not wait for the surgery at once but you should also try out the non-surgical methods first and see if they work. The minor or partial injuries can be effectively treated with the help of medicines and physiotherapy. But if the injury is severe and complete, there might arise a need to remove the torn ligaments and replace it with a graft where a new ligament will form.
The procedural steps of an arthroscopic PCL reconstruction surgery is enumerated below:
If you are thinking that instead of going into all this, you can simply sew up your wound together, then you are completely wrong as ligaments cannot be restored in that manner. Arthroscopy is one of the most recommended surgeries in the world now. They are the least invasive. The surgery involves minimum pain for the patient. You will have a much quicker recovery time than usual.
