Hello. After surgery, expect to be on crutches for at least three weeks. Full recovery, using a comprehensive rehabilitation program will generally take about three to four months and athletes involved in high demand sports can be back on the field in about six to eight months. Patients should see complete restoration of their leg within six to 12 months if they follow the physical therapy regimen and do not re-injure the knee by doing certain activities too soon after surgery. Good Luck.
