Avoid ACL Surgery with Regenexx
Have you been told that invasive surgery is your only option to fix your torn ACL? Interventional orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.
An injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can cause substantial difficulty with basic mobility and function and is especially common among athletes. Strains or sprains to the ACL typically heal with rest, but at the point of ACL tear, the main treatment option is surgery involving applying a tissue graft taken from elsewhere in the body or a cadaver. This graft attaches at a steeper angle than the original tendon which causes more compression on the cartilage in the knee and greatly increased chance of osteoarthritis while the position sense and strength in the repaired knee are never the same. In addition, as is typical with orthopedic surgeries, patients who get this surgery are significantly more likely to experience additional knee injuries. The Regenexx perc-ACLR procedure is an injection-based procedure that can replace 70% of ACL-repair surgeries. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing agents into the precise areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your knee joint for better function and mobility.
