I was in a motor cycle crash a year and a half ago and due to other problems that have been resolved they can now fix my knee. After a MRI they have found that I have only MCL in my left knee in tact and need to have a operation to fix this. I have found many people with ACL tears on you tube but can't find info on the problems I have in my knee. Where could I see an operation to fix all ligaments if it can be done as will see my Doc soon to discuss the options and would like to know what they are before we do speak?
If conservative therapy has failed then you can consider surgery to fix your problem with the ligaments in the knee.
You can go for arthroscopic surgery.
Ask your orthopedician for a complete examination of your ligaments. There are some tests which can be done to know and compare the strengths of your ligaments. For anterior cruciate ligament there is anterior drawer test and Lachman test. For posterior cruciate ligament there is posterior drawer test and for meniscus injury there is apley's grinding test and mc murray's test.
I have had arthroscopic surgery and they have found that after a year and a half I still have grade 2 tears of my ACL, LCL and PCL but l have MCL in tact what would you suggest as a next course of action?
