At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we can help you find the information and support you need to help you if you have been suffering from an injured or long-term knee problem.

Have you injured your knee or have a long-term knee problem?

One of the options available at our hospital is an ACL reconstruction. This involves replacing the anterior cruciate ligament in your knee using a tendon from another part of the body. ACL reconstruction can help improve the stability and the function of your knee, following an injury. 

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital our expert consultant surgeons will advise you if ACL reconstruction is suitable for you and advise you on all aspects of your surgery before your operation. If not suitable for this type of surgery, options such as Physiotherapy, exercises or a knee brace may be some of the recommended options which we can also provide. 

What is anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction?

The ACL is a strong ligament that runs diagonally through the middle of your knee. It helps to keep your knee stable, especially when you turn, or when your knee joint moves from side to side. 

The ACL is one of the most common ligaments in the body to be injured. Usually it becomes torn when you slow down very quickly while turning or sidestepping at the same time. Sports such as basketball, football, rugby, skiing or other sports that involve force on the knee joint can put you at more risk of having a knee injury. In these cases ACL is a suitable treatment which can offer the possibility of returning to playing sport. 

ACL reconstruction involves replacing your torn ligament with a graft. The graft is usually taken from a tendon in another part of your body. Once the graft is in place and following recovery the knee should become stable again offering full movement. Other problems with your knee such as torn cartilages, other ligament injuries or arthritis may affect this and your consultant will discuss this with you at your appointment.

Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips,

Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston,
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong,
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl,
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey,
