Eagle and Summit County's Trusted Knee Surgeon

ACL Reconstruction Surgery in the Vail Valley

 

In the mountains of Frisco and Vail, Colorado, ACL tears are a common sports-related injury. The ACL - or anterior cruciate ligament - is the ligament that connects the femur to your tibia and helps stabilize the knee joint. A sudden cutting motion, aggressive pivot, awkward landing, or forceful stop can sprain or tear the ACL. Many patients report a "popping" sensation in the knee followed by symptoms of severe pain, swelling, and loss of motion in the knee.

ACL tears cannot heal on their own and should be treated immediately to prevent long-term knee complications. Contact Dr. Joseph at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics today to discuss if ACL reconstruction surgery is right for you.
