My wife 48 years (63 kg) got complete ACL tear about 6 month back. Now she can briskly walk use stairs & no pain / instability in her lt knee. Is arthroscopy necessary or physio will do?

1 Doctor Answered
If no instability surgery not required but she will need a regular treatment with physio to strengthen her Quadriceps and Hamstring musculature. If she has instability an all Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction will be recommended. Regards
